A partitioned stateless session bean

A partitioned stateless session bean (PSSB) is a stateless session bean that implements the PartitionHandlerLocal interface, and utilizes the PartitionManager to create partitions from the partitioning facility's (WPF) framework. The runtime characteristics are the same as a normal stateless session bean from a runtime perspective.

The special features of this bean type include the following:

In summary, a PSSB is a typical session bean that implements and calls methods from the partitioning facility's framework. These methods are similar in many ways to existing EJB callback method handling but have functions that are related to partitioning rather than normal EJB callback methods.
