Hi all,
In a tutorial, I found that a session bean instance can be used by only 1 client at a time, but an entity bean instance can be used by more than 1 client at a time. I think the second part of the statement is wrong as EJB is based on RMI-IIOP. Please comment on the topic.
Thanks

Entity beans by their nature need to be accessible to more than one client at a time. The container is required to handle concurrency issues within entity beans. According to Monson-Haefel on page 63 of his book _Enterprise JavaBeans_,
"EJB has addressed the dangers associated with concurrency in entity beans by implementing a simple solution: EJB, by default, prohibits concurrent access to bean instances. In other words, several clients can be connected to one EJB object, but only one client thread can access the bean instance at a time. ... In fact, if [a] method is part of a larger transaction the bean instance cannot be accessed at all, except within the same transaction context, until the entire transaction is complete."
Does this answer your question?

So I left, I came home, and I ate some pie. And then I read this tiny ad:
