I am developing a project as Task Tracking System.One of the entities used in my project are Client and Task.So i build the bean for Client and Task.
The Client Bean consists:Client Id,ClientName,ClientStatus.The Task bean consists of TaskId,TaskName,Description,CreateDate,TaskStatus etc.The Relation between client and task is of one to many relation.So I include Clientid in Task Bean.Now i want to show the list of task with their client as

ClientName ClientStatus TaskName CreateDate TaskStatus....

For this i am getting the above data from the database .Now i want to set the bean properties after getting the resultset from the database.Now the problem is that which bean property should i set.If i set the Task property,i will do as follows....
Task task=new task();
task.setTaskName(rs.getString(1))
task.setClentId(rs.setClientId(rs.getInt(2))....etc

Now how will i set the property for ClientName and Client Status properties.
And i want the total records in a bean so that i can print the bean value using get method on JSP.So how should i set the bean value and store that in ArrayList so that i can print all the information.Please resolve the above problem and also new ideas to solve the above problem in another way is most welcome.If you can provide some code then it will be very useful to me.But any way i will stick to setting bean properties.
Thanks in advance

Mohsin,
It looks like there is a logical relationship between the two. Maybe that a task is owned by a client? You could have a client field on the task object.

Or if this is only used for data transfer, you could have a new object with all the fields you need. A bean without logic (and just data) doesn't need to represent a domain object. It is literally representing a row.

Manuel,
Thanks for pointing that out. I'll close this copy so all discussion can continue in one place.
