I was looking for the best solution to implement medium-size enterprise system. The system will be consist of 3 layers - server layer, thin-web-client layer (using Java Server Faces), thick-client layer (using C# and remoting). I've a problem with server layer - I don't know which technology to choose - EJB or something else. I want scalable and efficent solution. I also want to create system in a not so long time. Is there any production ready solution which will be better than EJB ?
I'd personally recommend Spring for the server layer.
then you can start real simple with POJOs and then get as complex or sophisticated as you like using interceptors & Spring Remoting.
Hi James, first of all thanks for reply. But I have a significant question: Does and why Spring is better than EJB?
you really don't need EJB %80 of the time,espcially for a mid size app.
Spring supports Transaction manamagment just like a a full blown J2EE app server would..ive developed a large application in J2EE(EJBs/Jboss) and if i was to do it all over i would have used Spring/Hibernate.
type: Spring vs. EJB in google.
