Hello All,

Sun defines the Service Locator Pattern saying that it "centralizes distributed service object lookups, provides a centralized point of control, and may act as a cache that eliminates redundant lookups."

If we have a singleton Service Locator, and the lookups are cached, won't we be accessing the same stateless session bean instances again and again which were cached? What about the stateless sessiion bean pool? Seems we won't be using it.

Thanks in advance.

With Service Locator you don't cache the bean object itself but the Home interface. Remember you access the underyling beans (Entity/Session) through Home interface lookup.
