Enterprise Java Beans (EJB) tutorials. Focusing on EJB 3.0 (EJB3) and above.
A stateful session bean is an enterprise bean (EJB component) that serves to be a client’s server side extension. It is created by one client and hence it works for just that client till the drop takes place in client connection or removal of the bean takes place explicitly. The stateful Bean (EJB Component) implements the interface javax.ejb.SessionBean and deploys to the “stateful” which is the declarative attribute. They are called stateful as conversational state is being maintained by them
