For an entity bean, when would you put a business method in a home interface as opposed to puting it in the component interface?

Whats the difference between a business method in home interface vs business method in component interface. HFEJB doesn't explain this very well.

Any one?

Ok. I think I found the answer:

Home methods are methods that the bean provider supplies for business logic that is NOT SPECIFIC to an entity bean instance.

Business methods in component interface are methods that the bean provider supplies for business logic that is SPECIFIC to an entity bean instance.

For example, if you want to add bonus to all employees you would put the addBonus() in your home interface.

Whereas if you want to add bonus to a specific employee, then you would put that method in the component interface.
