What advantage does an entity bean have over a sessin bean?..

Answer / uppi

Entity Bean is a Java class which implements an Enterprise
Bean interface and provides the implementation of the
business methods. There are two types: Container Managed
Persistence (CMP) and Bean-Managed Persistence (BMP).
Session Bean is used to represent a workflow on behalf of a
client. There are two types: Stateless and Stateful.
Stateless bean is the simplest bean. It doesn't maintain any
conversational state with clients between method
invocations. Stateful bean maintains state between invocations.

What advantage does an entity bean have over a sessin bean?..

Answer / gaurav

An entity bean represents an entity such as an employer,
student, etc. A session bean is a type of EJB (Enterprise
JavaBean) that encapsulates the logic of a business process
and business rules. Entity beans offer the following
advantages over session beans:

Persistence: Entity beans are persistent, i.e., the state
of the bean exists beyond the lifetime of the application
or the application process. There are two types of
persistence: Bean-managed and Container-managed. In Bean-
managed persistence, the code contains the calls that
access the database. In Container-managed persistence, the
EJB container generates the database calls.
Shared Access: Multiple clients can share the entity beans.
It works within the transactions as the client changes the
Primary Key: Each entity bean has a unique object
identifier that enables the client to locate a particular
entity bean.
Relationship: An entity bean can relate to other entity
beans. Both CMP and BMP can be used to maintain
