Our company is in the process of developing a huge application using oracle as back end.But one of the requirements for this system was not to use a web interface.We are thinking abt having the need to use a middle tier preferable EJB to manage transactions and recovery management.If there are anyone who have done on such a combination of technologies can u advice on the issues they faced and suggestions???
Thx in advance...

An answer to such a general question would be very, very long. Is there any thing you are specifically worried/unsure about?

yes the main concern was the performance speed of the application.

I wouldn't worry too much about the EJB layer's performance, written properly it will perform comparably to similar technologies. There's a wealth of info out there to help with that. Try J2EE Performance for good general info. And remember the general rule - worry about performace only if it shows itself to be an issue, unless its actually a listed requirement.

You mention Swing in your question's title? There's where you might have a problem. Writing a good Swing app (if it involves any real complexity) can be a very time consuming job - particularaly if you want it to be performant. I've worked on J2EE apps with AWT/Swing clients and was a little alarmed how much effort was eaten up by the GUI. You might consider looking for a preexisting GUI product you can adapt - that way a lot of the effort has alread ybeen done.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
