This week's book giveaway is in the OCPJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide and have Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates on-line! See this thread for details.
The "Session Facade" pattern in Sun's J2EE Design Patterns Catalog discusses the idea of combining a server-side facade (i.e. a Session Bean) with a client-side facade in order to make the client agnostic to the actual method of database persistence (EJB, JDBC/SQL class, etc.). Unfortunately, most of the facade examples that I can find are simply Session Beans acting as server-side facades. Can anyone point me to a good example of a client-side abstraction facade combined with a server-side Session Facade? Thanks! Buzz
