EJB design: EJB for web-based tool development

  1. EJB for web-based tool development (3 messages)

    We have a client who would like to build a set of server-side tools for developing web-based business applications. Does EJB fit well with web-based tools development?

    I would say that it doesn't. EJB is a component model for solving business problems. I can't see how it could be used to build simple tools.

  3. Why not? It can certainly be used for storing/retrieval/manipulation/execution of various business rules/etc submitted by clients.
  4. I suppose it depends on your definition of tools. Badrinarayanan, what tools do you need to build? Tell us about your product.

    When I think of "tools for developing web based applications" I think of JSP editors. Surely you wouldn't use EJB to implement a JSP editor. :)
