If your facade session bean accesses the entity bean via its local interface, then its impossible for you to get a RemoteException, ever.

Are there any step by step diagrams on how to apply the Fifth Position Break pattern ?
With regards to the book, I having a "hard" time wrapping my head around the concept. It's funny for a while, but it wears thin after a few reads. It's certainly more fun than reading GoF but ..
I would think that aggregation and composition are modelling concepts and
how that translates to Java code is something entirely different. I think it's certainly difficult to ascertain the difference b/w an association and aggregation from code (as Ilja pointed out) and whether it's necessary at all.
Fowler blogged on this in May.
Howard,
How do you go about organizing a study group on design patterns ?
Is there "pattern" to the agenda that you follow during discussion ?
What text would you recommend using ?

In the book Effective Java, Jason Bloch proposed this hashCode formula (here shown for strings). What is the significance of the magic numbers 17 and 37 ? Is some number theory math wizardry involved ?

Thanks Tim.

If you look at the picture, I'm now able to display the strings in the combobox instead of the codes. However the selected item is now showing the code. This is due to the fact that I overrode getSelectedItem() in my custom model.
e.g.

Basically the getSelectedItem is behaving like I want it to be. However
the combobox should highlight the selected item & not display its code.
Any comments ?
Thanks

A vector can contain objects of heterogeneous types.
If I want to write a verification method to ensure that
all its elements are of a certain class; are there any
convenience methods to do this; other then iterating thru it and
checking each individual.
Thanks

I want to create a ComboBox which will be constructed using:

My custom Combobox model will contain a Map (key and the actual name for display). Thus I will need a customRenderer to dereference the actual name
for display. Right ? Now, in the interface for ListCellRenderer, there is
a method:

What is the type of value parameter and who actually sets it ?
Thanks

I have a singleton that generates monotonically increasing ids for
my SWING app. Although the singleton will be unloaded when the SWING app terminates; I suspect that the app will be running for like 8 hours a day. Is there a way to replace the singleton ?
