If an object is referenced by a local variable -- is it safe from concurrency issues?!_NEWLINE_!

No. The local variable only holds a pointer to an object; if other threads can also point to this object, then it needs to be made thread-safe.

If your servlet were creating an instance of a class, then that instance would be thread-safe. However, if I understand your question correctly, your servlet is getting an instance of an entity EJB. In that case, all of the servlets are sharing the same object, so that more than one could be modifying instance variables in the object at the same time, i.e., you are not safe from concurrency issues.
