I have a client-side business delegate which creates a stateful session EJB. I keep a reference to it in the business delegate. The stateful session EJB is a remote SFSB. The business delegate passes the SFSB on to the remote facade. When the SFSB actually gets used, it is used only locally by other EJBs or POJOs in the EJB business tier. I'd like to use the SFSB in local mode to increase performance.
