    Mutable interface

      Mutable interface:


      /**
       * Must be implemented by any SESSION or CONVERSATION scoped
       * mutable JavaBean component that will be used in a clustered
       * environment. If this interface is not implemented correctly,
       * changes may not be replicated across the cluster (depending
       * upon the servlet engine implementation).
       * 
       * @author Gavin King
       *
       */
      public interface Mutable extends Serializable
      {
         /**
          * Get and clear the dirty flag.
          * 
          * @return true if the instance is dirty and requires replication
          */



      1) what exactly is the definition of a mutable JavaBean component?  seems to me all JavaBean components by default are mutable as per the setter methods, no?
