I wrote an ejbSelect method which would return more than 1000 bean instances after a query. But I found all other methods (say, findByPrimaryKey or the getter/setters) would be slowed down after the particular ejbSelect method is invoked. actually, it appears that they are just blocked. yet everything is okay if the resultset is small enough (e.g.under 50). I studied the for-pay-documents and tried hard to configure it, but all in vain. I remained almost all the default settings of the standardjboss.xml file. But a large resultset is a quite common scenario, right? (for example, all the topics of a forum...) I believe I've missed some configuration thing, but what's that, please?
