i am using a stateful session bean and caching the javax.ejb.Handle handle to it, but i think the session bean is timing out if there is a lull period in the session. This leads to handle getting stale. What is the solution to that? I tried playing with the bean cache. There are three drop downs in WSAD 4, activate at, load at, and pinned down. Can somebody give me an idea what the values should be for those three attributes?
