Can we use equals() on a primary key class to determine if two keys refer to the same entity or should we use isIdentical() method only?

isIdentical() is for EJBObjects only. You can use equals to compare the primary key as long as both entity beans come from the same home. When you create a primary key class, you are required to implement equals so that this will work.
