Getting the same SFSB over a conversation?
I tried to learn and implement a simple example using EJB3 in a web application. I understand teh diff b/w Stateful and Stateless EJBs. But i am missing is how to get the same SFSB for a sequence of actions.
My scenario is: I am developing a simple ShoppingCart application. So users browse thru the catelogue and selects an item and click on AddToCart. For the first item i need to get a new CartBean(SFSB) and for the subsequent AddToCart actions i need to get the same CartBean(SFSB) and has to add the items in the collection, say List<Item> instance variable in CartBean.
But in the EJB3 documentation, i read something like whenever you do a JNDI lookup, you will be given a new EJB instance(whether it is stateful/stateless).
So my dear EJB gurus, please suggest me how to get the EJB instances, both SLSB and SFSB) in web app environment. It would be great if u give some piece of code examples/ links.
Thanks in advance.
