hi, I´ve a database and I´ve generated persistence POJOs by means of hibernate tools. I would like to develop a GUI with forms that will populate the already generated POJOs. Then with hibernate I will save session information in the database. I don´t want to use EJBs, hibernate sessionfactory will manage all I need as far as the database is concerned. The POJOs will just be changed to include some annotations that will take care of validations (hibernate validator). Is the approach without EJBs suitable or should I use EJBs under all circumstances? thanks in advance!
