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 JavaBean as a whole, we use the name of its remote interface in Roman type. For example, we will refer to the BaggageHandler bean when we want to talk about the bean in general.
