Did any of you refer to the Adventure Builder application in your part 2 and 3? Why PetStore? What is so special about the PetStore application?

Sun designed petstored to show the power of J2EE. Therefore, all the J2EE patterns are used in petstore. If you study petstore, you can learn how those patterns are used in practice.

I never looked at the Adventure Builder, but since it's from Sun too, why should they break with their own architectural style? I would except the same concepts on the adventure builder. Any other impressions out there? Has anyone looked at the AB already?

I answered to this before, but lately items on this forum seem to disapear
From a amount of classes point of view, both applications are about the same size (around 250 classes). I didn't have a deeper look at the AdventureBuilder, but since it's also a Sun demo app, I would expect it to have the same architectural features as petstore.
I guess the benefit of petstore is that there is more additional reading out there that's not only from Sun.
