Support I have a stateless session bean in my class diagram. My controllers are decoupled from the stateless session bean via the use of a business delegate. If the session bean exposes operations/methods: oper_1,...,oper_N - do people think it is overkill to have the same method names in the delegate. Personally, think it makes things look very cluttered
I had a similar issue. But the fact is that a business delegate shields clients from business services, so the methods may or may not have the same name. It may look cluttered / redundant, but it's not wrong. E.g. you may have a method in your BD named fetchUser(Long id), which calls a session bean method named searchUserById(Long). Or it may have the same name. Depends on your naming convention and if you like the adopted approach.
