Of course it can. Just don't try and keep state in it :-)
so that means that i cannot implement a ShoppingCart using a Stateless session bean...... correct?
because iw anted to do like the dvd example.. when the user and an item, the item is added to the cart and shown on the page.
I suppose Stateless SB cannot be used for that purpose then (because they are state...less) ..
am i understanding it correctly
If you want to keep state in the bean, it is stateful, by definition.
