I have a question regarding the use of ORM frameworks with BEA WebLogic Server controls. I was questioning the need to use any type of BEA Controls when implementing a persistence layer with an ORM framework? I foresee no need since you can control transactions, pools, and other parameters directly with Apache OJB (or Hibernate or Spring) for that matter?

It puzzles me to see applications using BEA Controls that are in turn using OJB objects (PersistenceBroker)! Most of the controls are EJB that are included as pools of resources by the J2EE application server. Thus increasing the layers of resources.

Anybody out there who could confirm my thesis that to add BEA Controls to an existing J2EE architecture is to add extra weight, coupling, and difficulty of testing!
