BeanName with a specific bean
An Enterprise JavaBean consists of many parts; it’s not a
single object, but a collection of objects and interfaces. To refer
to an enterprise bean as a whole, we use its business name in Roman
type, followed by the acronym EJB. For example, we will refer to the
Customer EJB when we want to talk about the enterprise bean in
general. If we put the name in a constant-width font, we are
referring explicitly to the bean’s remote interface; thus,
CustomerRemote is the remote interface that
defines the business methods of the Customer EJB.
