16.9. Configuring EJB 2.x Entity Beans

16.9.1. EJB Entity Beans

EJB Entity Beans are a type of enterprise bean from version 2.x of the EJB specification that represented persistent data that was maintained in a database. Entity beans have been superseded by JPA entities and officially listed for removal (pruning) from future versions of the specification. Red Hat does not recommend the use of Entity Beans except for backwards compatibility.
Support for Entity Beans is disabled by default in JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6.
