 Description   

In [Part IV Enterprise Beans > 22. Enterprise Beans > What Is an Enterprise Bean?], I do not get the meaning of "32-bit methods" in the sentence "By invoking these 32-bit methods, clients can access the inventory services provided by the application."
There are methods returning 32-bit integers but this is probably not meant here and also irrelevant to a very basic introductory paragraph. I am sure the sentence would be more correct and easier to understand if "32-bit" was omitted.

I agree. There's no reason to include "32-bit" as a qualifier here, and 64-bit JVMs make this potentially inaccurate now, whatever the original motivation.

Fixed in source. Will appear in the next published update.
