Peter is right, though for the wrong reason. :)

SLSBs *do* have state, as the instance is returned to the Pool after use.  Therefore invocation-specific data should not be kept in instance members of a SLSB.  For SFSB this is acceptable (and good practice) because it's guaranteed that every subsequent invocation upon a given proxy will invoke upon the same SFSB instance.

However, EJBs are Thread-safe - no two invocations will use the same instance concurrently (by spec anyway):
