"An enterprise Bean must not use read/write static fields. Using read-only static fields is allowed. Therefore, it is recommended that all static fields in the enterprise bean class be declared as final."
So you can use static as a mean of declaring constants but not use it as a field which value can be updated by multiple bean instances. Therefore, static block would be illegal.
