like the name of this topic, i'm looking for the best way to transport a container with 2 different type of data.. let's say 2 Beans or DTO's between layers in an application
i'm thinking in 2 options:
1) create a generic 'ArrayList' (with the type undefined) and put the first DTO in the 0 location and the second DTO in the 1 location
2) create a 'Map' (also with the type undefined) and put both DTO's there
maybe there's a better way to do this. hope someone could help me
The best way is to define a method in the target layer of your application that takes two parameters of the type you want to transport to it. Can you show why that's impractical in your case? A more specific definition of what you mean by transport would help as well.
Agreed--why lose type safety when you don't have to?

well i have 2 different types of data containers (java Beans) and i need them both in an action... and i wanted to call both of them at the same time
anyone knows how to make a 'multiple return' method or maybe just storing both Beans in another object and transport that object will solve it?
