i have a little local web site with jsp /servlet, i created a bean...... and a dao... what is the best way to use the dao? in the servet take the jsp parameter, populate the bean and send the bean to dao?
The POJO (Plain Old Java Object) is there to move "business logic" out of the servlet and JSP.
Some interesting guidelines: servlet is all Java, uses request & response, no HTML. JSP is all HTML & tags, no Java. POJO is all Java, no HTML, no HTTP* imports.
Editing: I just spotted that you were talking about a bean to hold the parameters that came in on the request. That's perfectly cool, too. I made mine hold the results we got back from the database on a query so we could have several beans involved in this thing.
Does that makes sense? [ September 05, 2006: Message edited by: Stan James ]
A good question is never answered. It is not a bolt to be tightened into place but a seed to be planted and to bear more seed toward the hope of greening the landscape of the idea. John Ciardi
