Lets say I have a stateful session bean performing some business logic. Lateron, I find that I could have as well made it as stateless session bean. Do I just have to change the <session-type> to stateless? Or is there anything else I need to do?

If you used any latent state (e.g. instance variables) to hold information between method invocations you'd need to move that to a persistent store like a database. Kyle
Also, You may know that, If you change from Stateful to Stateless, any create() methods you have for stateful beans with arguments have to be changed to one create() method with no arguments for the stateless session bean.
