I would not worry about it for most stuff. I don't think keeping the ends from moving longitudinally for most simple beams is going to make a difference is most cases and most design / checking software [not FEM] is going to assume a roller on one end, just like steel joist tables, etc... Avoid paralysis by analysis.
What I really want to know is for a composite beam composed of a wide flange beam supporting a one-way concrete slab: for a beam side load from a shear plate connection off the side of the steel beam, should the shear studs be designed for tension [as well as shear] to keep the wide flange from pulling away from the concrete slab? Just kidding.
