JBoss EJB3 provides Thread-safe Proxies from JNDI.  This may not be true in other implementations.

"EJB 3.0 Core Specification 4.7.11: Non-Reentrant Instances" wrote : The container must ensure that only one thread can be executing an instance at any time. If a client request arrives for an instance while the instance is executing another request, the container may throw the javax.ejb.ConcurrentAccessException to the second client[24]. If the EJB 2.1 client view is used, the container may throw the java.rmi.RemoteException to the second request if the client is a remote client, or the javax.ejb.EJBException if the client is a local client.[25]

  | One implication of this rule is that an application cannot make loopback calls to a session bean instance.

For SLSB, invocation may occur concurrently, though separate underlying bean instances will be used (as we pull only unused instances from a Pool.

For SFSB, invocation will block until the requisite session is available/unused.  You may override this behaviour using the @SerializedConcurrentAccess annotation.

Yes, cache your entries from JNDI for SLSB, and only perform a lookup on SFSB when you need a *new* session.
