In case of stateful session beans there is no such thing as "pool", atleast this is whats clear from the lifecycle diagram of a stateful session bean. But yes in case of a stateless session bean, there is a "pool" of instances maintained.
And so, we can conclude that once a remove() is invoked on a steteful session bean, the bean instance goes to "does not exist" state.

Thanks Tiro for your reply.
One more Doubt,for the same case how Entity Bean will react?
