Subject Just curious - How cloesly do your value objects back the data model?
Date Thu, 04 May 2006 17:46:43 GMT
I'm often torn when developing web applications how Object Oriented I
should build my value objects. For examle...

You might have an Employee table...


Do you guys typically have your Employee value object hold "Integer
companyId" or instead populate the companyId in a Company object as a
property of Employee...

class Employee {
   Integer employeeId;
   Company company; //instead of Integer companyId

I typically take the above approach (using Company) but  there are
times when I don't always follow this practice.
