Architecture proposal

this is a description of my architecture. I am doing the

I defined a class called Record which is a wrapper around the String[] record in the database which defines a room and contains other information (rowNumber, deleted flag)

I have a DBMain interface and a Data class that implements DBMain. The Data class has a reference to two singletons, LockManager and RecordManager.

RecordManager is used to access and persists Records. All his methods are synchronized since I want to make sure access to the file happens sequentially. I do use a cache when reading a record, and when writing a record I update the cache while writing the record back to the file. I have also a list of deleted records to reuse when create[]

LockManager maintains a weakhashmap where a logical lock on a record by
a DBMain instance is stored. Access to this weakhashmap is synchronized.
I assuming every client is using a different DBMain instance (I don't have

I have two remote objects, DBMainAdapterPool and DBMainAdapter. The DBMainAdapterPool maintains a pool of DBMainAdapter in a HashMap.
The DBMainAdapter wraps a DBMain instance and exposes two business methods
for searching and booking, which use the methods exposed by the DBMain

To get a reference to a DBMainAdapter the client
has to lookup the DBMainAdapterPool, and call its method lookupAdapter,
which returns the JNDI name for an available DBMainAdapter. The client then
looks up this name for a DBMainAdapter instance. When done with it, the client calls the method releaseAdapter(String adapterName) so that the
adapter can be returned to the pool and another client can use it.
I synchronize calls to lookupAdapter and releaseAdapter, so that two clients
don't get the same DBMainAdapter instance

The gui maintains a reference to a DBMainAdapter during his lifetime and releases it on quitting. The DBMainAdapter asks the pool to release him when

Do you see any problem with this architecture?
