About client-server interaction...

In my design, the Data class is fully encapsuled in a DataFactory, which is in turn used by a <Remote/Local>BusinessService that implements the interface BusinessService:
Collection findByCriteria(Criteria criteria);
Bookable book(Bookable bookable, BigInteger requested seats);
In this way, the client does not call directly the criteriaFind or getRecord method(it doesn't know anything about how the data is retrieved), but it iteracts with a command pattern which uses a remote or local BusinessService and return the business object (an object which implements the Bookable interface).
Is that design wrong?? The instructions.html says : "The remote client code should implements all the public method of the Data class".
I think the client code shouldn't know the method getRecord, criteriaFind. The server(local or remote) should must hide this details providing any method like book, findByCriteria, findByPrimaryKey, etc...
Thanks everyone...

I can't be sure, but I think you're on the right track: it sounds like you're pretty much providing an Adapter pattern, which is pretty much what you want to do.
