Subject RE: Abator generated classes and MVC
Date Wed, 22 Jul 2009 19:52:56 GMT
Thanks for your opinion Jeff.

I agree that DAO and Impl so in controller.
Right now I have a delegate pattern which delegates the calls to DAO from the service layer.

More clearly...

I have a view layer, model layer

Model layer has all the Abator generated code,
View has all the beans, handlers.
Controllers are the services, which in turn call the DAOs

In handlers would it be a good idea to create an example and pass it to the service layer
or pass a view bean and create the example in the service layer?

I want to have the modularity of pulling out each layer with minimum changes in the other
layers.

Even if I forego iBatis I can use Account.java as a dto. But can I use the DAO/Impl and example?
If I cannot, what would be the better approach?

Thanks
Vinaya

My opinion, and it is just opinion, is that Account and AccountExample
are *sort of* like model classes (although Account suffers from the
"anemic domain model" disease).  AccountDAO and AccountDAOImpl are
service classes - to be used by the controller layer.  Ultimately, my
view is that these are all utility classes to be used by the real MVC
classes in your app.

If you forego iBATIS in the future, then AccountExample will be of
little use to you - it is very coupled to iBATIS.
