Java EE Command Pattern Architecture
Tired of dealing with EJBs but cannot use other frameworks like Spring? How would you like to replace all of your remote Stateless Session Beans with POJOs and still access them remotely within Java EE? By using the Java EE Command Pattern we can write EJBs as POJOs and solve many of the issues facing EJB, including testability, configuration complexity, and performance, and still remain within the boundaries of the Java EE container. The Java EE Command Pattern is a simple pattern that can significantly reduce the complexity of large-scale Java EE enterprise applications. In this session we will explore the numerous issues facing a typical EJB architecture and learn how the use of the Java EE Command Pattern can solve these issues. We will walk through the different design alternatives and see how the command pattern is implemented in both EJB3 and in Spring. Through interactive coding examples you will learn what components make up the Command Pattern framework and what simple coding changes are required to convert a complex remote EJB-based application to a much simpler remote POJO-based application.
