I have a stateful session bean with 2 public class level variables. I am assuming that once the values are set, they will be saved for the duration of the session, but it's not happening that way. The to variables are ArrayList objects. I have set my ejb deployment correctly to stateful and container configureation to Standard Stateful Session Bean. What am I missing? Please let me know if you have any helpful hints on how to get statful session bean working in Jboss.
