Oh yeah, it does that proxy generation thing. Have you considered doing JDK
1.3 dynamic proxies so you don't have to have that combersome preprocessing

Very simple. I have a web page that I need to display all the info about a
user on. I just need all the data (read only situation) from that object so
I can display it on the page. I certainly don't want to call a "getter" for
each piece of data if it's a remote object.

Again, it's exactly like the value object, but I'm just thinking of doing it
the easy way (maintaining all the value objects and data objects separately
is a big nuisance if the system is simple enough--and much less efficient).
