how-to-jdev- Use ADF BC Model as EJB Session Bean

One of my customer ask we how to use a ADF BC Model in remote mode with JDeveloper He told me he could found no documentation. So over the years of different version and introduction of ADF Binding this deployment option is maybe not in the main focus. But it is realy easy when you know what steps you must configure.
1.) Configure ADF BC Model for EJB Session Bean Deployment
2.) Change the configuration inside BC4JDataControl Properties in the UI
So listen to my not perfect viewlet here.
