On page 398 we have a remote home interface belonging to a discussion on CMR. On page 386 it says: "The only restriction is that a relationship field can be only a local component interface type! You can't have a CMR relationship field that uses a bean's Remote interface!" The bean, MovieBean, on page 398 is clearly in relationship with another bean, DirectorBean, if you look at the DD on pages 394-395. Am I losing it?!
