I should used less active or less intense or less aggressive than using "dumb" .. but it is too late to correct now.

Hey, I never had a intention to start a thread about racial or sexual superiority ... there is a big big difference between racial superiority and genetically strong ... atleast I thought so ... I am sorry if the words used made you intrepret them wrong.

This problem is not unique to Entity Beans. It is a problem with any persistance service that is not using a distributed cache. How does not using Entity Beans solve this problem?

You are right. My arguement is you shouldn't use entity beans if your application happen to fall into the mentioned scenerio.

Why? I don't see any particularly distinctive disadvantage to using Entity Beans in this situation.

If the you have two servers that aren't clustered there is a possibility that one server have dirty copy of a bean. In that case we will be forced to call ejbLoad every time a database operation is performed, which takes away a major advantage of using entity ejb, caching.

I don't understand one thing here.It is mentioned that "If your application always need the excat copy of the data in the database, using entity bean is not good solution".
In entity beans only the callback methods (ejbLoad() and ejbStore())ensure that the data is always in sync and u work with current copy of the data..

You are correct, if we assume that your application is the only entry point to the database. But in real life this may not be true.

Why Entity bean is avoided ?

Below are the list of scenario where you may have to avoid using entity bean,
1) Loading whole bunch data in to database in one shot is very very inefficient when done using entity bean.
2) Rearly used data should not be repesented as entity bean.
3) When you have a production enviornment with multiple appln servers and they are not clustered DO NOT USE entity bean.
4) If your application always need the excat copy of the data in the database, using entity bean is
not good solution.
I may have left few others ...
If your application involves, for the most part, one of the above scenario usage of entity bean should be avoided.

Yes. I feel I understand the looting by many Iraqis and don't hold it against them. It was to be expected quite honestly. It's too bad many didn't realize that it was only themselves they were stealing from though.

I felt it was more of a revenge than looting. Many of the looters would now be wondering what to do this their "booty".
