Subject Re: Smileys Cocoon sample... the sequel

Ahh, perhaps I'm not making myself clear. Enterprise programmers have a sort
of different view of server and client side. To us, anything requesting
services of an EJB that isn't an EJB itself is a client. My vision is the
following

EJBs implementing complex logic in a distributed manner. These Components
will have a number of clients, some clients are things like the web and
wireless devices (where I think cocoon might apply) other clients are things
like GUI's, other businesses, other software and so on. Cocoon is a powerful
presentation tier but I would never want to drop business logic into it.
First of all it constrains me that all of my clients are web based. Second of
all, its not scalable when talking about thousands of transactions per second
(my normal ballpark in EJB systems) third of all its limiting in its scope.
For these and other reasons I wouldn't use cocoon for more than a
presentation tier.
