Subject Re: Abator generated classes and MVC
Date Wed, 22 Jul 2009 18:48:28 GMT
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.
