EJB design: Is an ejbHome object threadsafe?

  1. Is an ejbHome object threadsafe? (1 messages)

    Hi everyone,

       In Weblogic, the EJBHome object is threadsafe, thus a good design strategy is to cache a home object in your servlet layer, and use that same home object for all clients accessing your site.

       Someone mentioned that a threadsafe home object is not mandated by the spec, and thus caching of home objects is not portable.

       Thoughts?

    Very interesting question.

    I would think that since it's obtained via jndi lookup all the clients (threads) will obtain the reference to the same object, so it must be thread-safe.

    Any other ideas?
