I understand that EJBMetaData is intended for development tools used for building applications that use deployed enterprise Beans, and for clients using a scripting language to access the enterprise Bean. My question in why is this interface available only to remote clients ? What is the logical reason for not having a getEJBMetaData method in the local home interface ?
Thanks

Vipin,
I'm an EJB newbie so please don't sue me if I'm wrong but I think the reason is that it is not necessary. You can use standard reflection to get all the bean info you need when the client is local. I found this tidbit of info from "Head Start EJB" which I highly recommend for newbies like me.
