Re: beginner question: Ozone & java.util collections
Thank you for your reply, I apologize for not formulating my question more
I was thinking of the case where the collection would be a database class.
Our application has an entry point to the database which is a Repository
class that returns Maps of business objects (e.g. Customers, Products) with
keys of name or id. If my understanding is correct a similar implementation
would require that the Maps be database classes since the Maps are
manipulated directly. Otherwise Ozone would return a serialized version of
the Map object to the client rather than a proxy and therefore adds &
deletes to the Map on the client wouldn't be reflected in the Map object in
the Ozone database.
One option would be to have a wrapper database class that passed the method
calls through to the Map in an instance variable. Perhaps that is the best
Are there other options?
Such as making a java.util.TreeMap a database class so one could have:
Map customers = (Map)db.objectForName ("customers");
and do read, adds & deletes.
