Hi all,

it's difficult to find a large solution using J2EE with entity bean. I've found a lot of systems and big companies that choose a alternative solution of persistence, like JDO.

what do you guys think about that ? have you used entity beans in large projects ?

regards,

Till EJB 2.0, Entity Beans was a joke. EJB 2.1 had quite a few improvements. But it still lacked some features. So you might find lot of systems not using Entity Beans, but going in for DAO or JDO because they are light weight.

Though I have not read the latest EJB specs (3.0), I belive it has something more to offer.

Also SpringFramework (http://www.springframework.org/) seems to be getting popular.

Peter.

Don't take me wrong.

Irrespective of its pitfalls, people are using Entity beans. Some of them for sure are high-profile projects.

The traction for JDO is going to decrease going forward because of the evolution of EJB3.0; but that is ok.
