Object State lost in Stateful Session Bean?

Hi everyone,

I have a RequestScoped backing bean that has a reference to a stateful session bean which is responsible for holding state with the client like this:

public class MyController

ClientSession clientSession;

public void createClient(){


public class ClientSession

// a reference to the clientFacade to access the database
private ClientFacade clientFacade;

private int id;
private Client clientEntity;

public void createClientEntity(){
// create client object
clientEntity = new Client();
// save object in database



Now when I am invoking the "createClient()"-method in the JSF which is backed by MyController, the ClientSession succesfully creates a new clientEntity object and also persists it to the database. However, when I refresh the page, only the id (primitive integer) is maintained and the clientEntity object is null. Why does the Stateful bean forget the state of the object?

Best Regards,
