I think it's important to remember that the application developers use
the @PostConstruct and @PreDestroy on stateless EJBs for initialization
and destroying certain application specific resources. In a non-pooled
case this is going to affect the performance and as has been noted, it's
ultimately something that each application needs to review. So this
isn't exactly the same as per-request objects, as far as I see it and
isn't just a case of Java object instantiation.

Which is also something that could be mitigated by a common thread
facility. Something AS/EAP 5 didn't have.
Honestly though, I think this talk of EJB pooling is ridiculous.
Component layers like CDI and JAX-RS don't have pooled architectures for
their per-request objects. Also, in an average application, there are
multiple orders of magnitude more non component classes that are being
instantiated per request. Just think of all the Strings created by a
simple HTTP request.
You want a better focus? How about JSON/XML marshalling? Which could
make things much easier to maintain then the hand-coded parsers that
Wildfly uses to parse config. And much faster and less memory at
runtime for SOAP and JAX-RS request that currently rely on java reflection.
You could go research perfect hashing algorithms for URL matching with
servlets and JAX-RS.
You could go do some perf analysis of all of our frameworks to make
memory reduction and speed recommendations or even Pull Requests.
You could visit each major project and make sure our automated builds
have and can run automated stress tests and are measured against
Or you could just focus on these silly benchmarks that test no-op HTTP
and EJB requests.
