EJB design: Entity Bean without attributes

  1. Entity Bean without attributes (1 messages)

    Can i have an entity bean without any attributes declared.. but it has get and set methods where it gets value from an serializable java object.. i mean, the entity bean bound to a java object.

    For examble i have an java object called Order

    Order.java

    class Order implements Serializable
    {
       private String acNum;

       public String getAccNum()
       {
          return accNum;
       }
    }

    and a OrderBean(EntityBean)

    OrderBean.java
    class OrderBean implements EntityBean
    {
       // all ejb related declarations

       // no attributes

       public String getAccNum(Order o)
       {
         return o.accNum;
       }
    }

    Is this possible..?

    Anyhelp will be highly appriciated..

    thanks

    Yes you definately can have this kind of a setup. What i do not get is the senario you want to use this in!!
