I have an application in which I am using value objects (entity objects) for datatransfer between various layers.
This works fine however there are certain issue when reports have to be generated.
I am find that reports actually consists of multiple value objects and some of them are actually calculated fields.
Should I change my value objects to include calculated fields? How should I deal with multiple objects.

This post is duplicated in the OO forum:
As this doesn't seem to be very EJB-specific, please continue discussion there. I will request that this thread gets closed.

The soul is dyed the color of its thoughts. Think only on those things that are in line with your principles and can bear the light of day. The content of your character is your choice. Day by day, what you do is who you become. Your integrity is your destiny - it is the light that guides your way. - Heraclitus
I agree. Here's the link:
