Is this option correct about Passivation ? "The instance fields are serialized and held with the EJBObject"

How the container performs passivation is a business decision of the container implementor. The spec just calls out what a beans life cycle should be when the container does it. I doubt the ejbObject will hold any data from an old instance. IMO, the ejbObject will be a recycled object or will be garbage collected at passivation of its bean.
