thanks to Reid and Ming, for clarifying this confusion.
The last but before bullet point on the right column on p:420 in HF EJB book, reads

A SELECT can return either an <abstract-schema-type>(which really means the bean's local component interface type) or a single-value field.

I think it could be changed to the below sentence.
A SELECT can return either a collection of local or remote interfaces.
It can also return either a single value field or a collection of single value fields that are part of the abstract schema.

Not sure if Kathy or Keith have noticed this, but looks like this error is missing in the errata at the OReilly site.
Would like to confirm with the other ranchers here about this error, before I actually go and update it at the OReilly site. Any comments?
