Hello, i have a doubt about entity...
I have a tipicall Entity Customer, account, contactinfo,...

Customer-->Account-->ContactInfo
Customer-->CreditCard

I have a sessionFacade before at this entityBeans. For retrieval data as all creditCards of one client or get all information of one customer is appropriate to use the find methods of Customer EntityBean or it is more right to use Stateless for retrieval data and to use Customer EntityBean to save data ???

Thanks.

It is better to use session bean to access the local home interface of the Entity bean instead of directly accessing the home interface of the Entity bean from the client, as the data access should not be explosed to the "outsiders".

That's why EJB 2.0 introduced the concept of local home interface.
