to get the right understandig of static variables within ejb i have the following question: Having
session Beans "A" and "B" both of which instantiates a class "X" with a static member "y",
where class "X" is a "normal" class, i.e no enterprise bean,
and session bean "A" is instantiated by one client
and session bean "B" is instantiated by a second client
and both clients running on different computers (i.e. different JVMs),
is it correct that both clients reference the same address if they access "y", i.e. both client can share/exchange data by using "y" ?
If so, is this behaviour specific for weblogic or is this the standard behaviour. Where can I get documentation about this ?
I know that EJB 2.0 spec., section 24.1.2 states that "enterprise Beans must not use read/write static fields" but does this include the "normal" classes which are instantiated by enterprise beans ?
