Is the aggregate entity pattern still important now that we have (2.0) the local home interface in a perforamance prespective?
One of the motives for the aggregate entity as i read in SUN site is :
there are inter-entity bean relationships. Because entity beans are distributed in nature, even if one entity bean invokes a method on another entity bean, the call is potentially treated as a remote call by the container even if both the entity beans are in the same container or JVM
Well, I got the answer :)
Its truely old and should not be used anymore as said in a design patterns book:
Don't use the composite entity bean pattern
