Stateless session bean = Message Driven Bean = Web service.
Stateful session bean, almost useless.
Entity Bean, almost useless,
BMP completely useless, even SUN EJB certification does not cover it.
CMP only make sense, as a cache solution, only on condition that you can use some tool to generate all the codes for you.
Entity Bean can not solve all your database access needs.
