I'm new to Stateful EJB (I had allways worked with stateless), so when I started working with EJBSF I (wrongly) thought that every time you invoked "create" method, container was clever enough to give you the same EJB instance. Since, instead of that, a new instance is created, then I lose all the attributes stored in EJBSF. So I have some questions about this:
1- I suppose I need to save a reference to EJBSF on client after having made ejbCreate(), but if client is a Servlet (I'm using an MVC approach) obviously I cannot save it as an attribute because Servlets are multithreaded. So which should be the best place to store this reference? Session object? Servlet context?
2- If I save a reference to the object created, then which are the advantages of EJBSF? I could use EJBSL, do what I want invoking a bussines method, an then saving the results as well
Thanks in advance
