was this from an example or is it part of the EJB-QL questions.
From my point of view there is too much weight put on the EJB Roles (BeanProvider, Application Assembler, Deployer, ...).

The separation of roles is an extremely important part of the specification, because at its heart, EJB is a component-based development model.
Althought the component marketplace is still emerging for EJB, this is cleary the direction that the industry is at least *trying* to move to.
