Does everyone uses Entity Beans?

No. Well, yes. O.K. not really.
Not "everyone" agrees on when it is best to use entity beans, either BMP or CMP. Several of the books that I have used for reference give the standard guideline: a persistent data object that would benefit from the services of the EJB container (transaction, security, lifecycle management, etc. ). One book that goes a bit deeper into the pros, cons, and alternatives is J2EE Design and Development by Rod Johnson.
Regards,
Bill
