    Removing stateless session beans

    fredatwork Newbie

      Hello,

      I'm relatively new to EJBs and I have a question on stateless session beans.

      I would like to know if I need to remove stateless session beans once I'm finished using them.

      I understand that my J2EE server (JBoss in this case) has a reserve of bean instances ready to execution business methods.

      Let's say I create a HelloWorld stateless session bean and call a helloWorld() method on it (the business method). Once the method returns, do I need to remove programatically the session bean in order to make sure that the stateless session bean returns to the server reserve of beans ? I would like to make sure my code does not leave "leftover" that would threaten the availability of server resources (session beans in this case).

      Thanks in advance for your help.

      Fred
