Do we need Transfer Objects ?
I came across http://www.agimatec.de/blog/2008/05/transferobjects-generieren/ today (in german). Roman (?) refers to http://java.sun.com/blueprints/corej2eepatterns/Patterns/TransferObject.html the old transfer object pattern in j2ee. I don't see why we need this anymore with JPA/EJB3. I think theres nothing up to using a consistent domain model on both client an server side. Its the same reason why I dont use GWT, because I cannot transfer my JPA enitites to the client and would agein have to use annoying transfer objects. Maybe it will get better if GWT can handle current Java versions. I would like to hear arguments why one still should use Transfer Objects in a client server environment. IMHO I think its completely unnecessary and overcomplicating things. Comments ?
