At the moment I have a simple Application that creates a number of Threads that do some long and complicated Processes on a number of machines.

So the question is:
Should the Thread be a Transactioned Stateful Session Bean - so it doesnt not get serialized during process?
Or just a stateless Bean, which is given a bunch of parameters for the process at hand?
At the moment the Threads have a instance variable which when called gives the state of the application at the present time - (eg: doing such and such, doing this that and the other).
I want the client to be able to check up on the state of the machine when nesscary - would it be best to say:
Every machine has a corresponding stateful bean for its processes
or every thread becomes a stateless session for its processes?
I can even see that an Entity bean may be useful becuase i would like the logs to be written to a database.
