    Should the Java transient keyword affect EJB3 persistence?

    Rick Meier Newbie

      I'm experimenting with field persisted entity beans in an architecture that uses a thick client. Specifically, I'm using the Java transient keyword to control the amount of a given object graph that is serialized from the server to the client. It seems to be working in that fields defined as transient are not serialized to the client, but updates are persisted from the server to the database via the EntityManager.

      Can I count on this behavior or did I stumble upon a bug?
