Hey Jim:

In general, use of File (and other I/O) resources is frowned upon in EJB because again you've got the issue of application code directly accessing something by bypassing the abstraction provided by the container.  This means that nothing is guarding it from concurrent access, providing rollback capabilities, etc.

For *non-mutable* resources, like reading in properties, you can package these inside your EJB JAR and get at them via this.getClass().getResource() in your bean implementation class.
