Hi, Recently I started working on a project that was developed by some other team. This Project is developed using
velocity - Struts - Session Facade - DTOs - EntityBeans (CMP) - DB2 8.1

AppServer: Websphere 5.1

I am in a situation where I need to add few fields to a form in the front end and store the data of new fields in a single table. Wondering how I should proceed with it. Any suggestions will be appreciated.
This is what I thought I should do, but wondering if there is any better approach to accomplish this.

1. Add fields (new columns) in the table.
2. Update Entity Beans. Related queries etc.
3. Update DTOs.
4. Update Session facade.
5. Update Struts Actions, Controllers etc.
6. Update Velocity pages.

Not sure if this will work. Or wondering if there is any other way that I should follow in Websphere Studio App Developer such as add fields in class diagram and then generate DDL etc.

Thanks.<br />Mayuri

your approach is right and there are no workarounds for ur problem. Can you explain in general about DTO, Session Facade and other design patterns u have used for your project ...
