    a Question about passivating StatefulSessionBean and EntityB

      Hi, I am reading JBoss 3.2.3 and have a question about passivating StatefulSessionBean instance and EntityBean instance.

      There are fellow statements, which are in line 120, StatefulSessionInstanceCache.java, used to decide if a SFSB instance can be passivated.
      if (ctx.getTransaction() != null)
      {
      try{
      return (ctx.getTransaction().getStatus() == Status.STATUS_NO_TRANSACTION);
      } catch (SystemException e) {
      // SA FIXIT: not sure what to do here
      return false;
      }
      }
      But the statements for EntityBean are different. We donÂ’t passivate an EB instance even itÂ’s transaction status is No_Transaction. Fellow statements are from line 128, EntityInstanceCache.
      if (ctx.getTransaction() != null)
      {
      return false;
      }
      I am puzzled :-(. Why did we implement the passivation of SFSB and EB in different ways?
      Thank you.
