it sounds like a good plan if you make sure you are using the same session across your components.
We are planning some work to take care of that session management transparently for you in JBoss with Hibernate
Thank you Marc for calming my nerves!
I was struggling with some (simple) HQL queries until 4 am :|, and my over-eager logging said that it found a records in the db, but my collection in the web tier was for some reason empty. I guess I need to do some more exploring. I'll keep in mind your session warnings, and yes I'm waiting eagerly on your JBoss - Hibernate solutions :)
Well I have a feeling this is going to be a long weekend…
