Subject DAO Objects - Hiding ?

Hi there,

I'm new to iBatis so excuse my lack of knowledge. I am currently looking at modifying an exisitng
J2SE Swing application so that it uses iBatis/Spring  for DB access rather than user JDBC
directly. I have read the info on the iBatis site and also had a read about the DAO pattern
for J2EE (  http://java.sun.com/blueprints/corej2eepatterns/Patterns/DataAccessObject.html
). I am unsure why my application (problem) logic should know about both my POJO and the DAO
associated with it. I would have thought my application would just need to know about the
POJO object and that would hide the details of the DAO behind the scene. In effect my POJO
would have its normal get/set methods plus methods associated with persistence such as update,
create, getNext .......

If anyone could point me to something that could clear my mental block about this or explain
why what I'm advocating is wrong I'd be most grateful.
