Understanding CMR

Hi,

I've been looking for a site or a book where to learn CMR but I'm getting crazy, all the examples are too long and complicated for me to understand.

Why do I need CMR?
Well, I have two tables in my database: Tickets and Concerts. If I want to calculate the number of tickets demanded for one concert .. I suppose I need to relate Tickets and Concerts beans .. but how? What fields should I create in the tables?

I'm starting to use jBuilder and creating the relationship, once I understand what fields I have to use, is not a problem but what is a mystery to me is: after creating the fields in database and the relationship in between the beans, what's next? which is the code I have to use in the servlet in order to manage the relationship? And what about the transactions? How are they used within CMR?

Thanks a million in advance

Thanks a lot. I’ve been studying the examples and I’ve created an example myself in order to apply it .. everything seems to be ok but I get an “ejb not bound” error all the time, no matter what I change.

Maybe you can help me, the example I’ve written is about to get all books from a book category (Fiction for example)
This is the jsp:


<%@page import="java.util.*,javax.transaction.*,javax.naming.*, folder.*" %>
<%
      Context ctx = new InitialContext();
      CategoryHome ch = (CategoryHome) ctx.lookup("ejb/Category");
      Category c = ch.findByPrimaryKey("Fiction");
     
      UserTransaction ut =  (UserTransaction) ctx.lookup("java:comp/UserTransaction");
      ut.begin();
      
      Collection books = c.getBook();
       %>
       
       <b>Books within the category  <%= c.getCategoryName() %></b><br>
       
         <%      Iterator it=books.iterator();
            while(it.hasNext())
            {
                  Book b=(Book)it.next();

        %>
       
<%=b.getBookName()%>

 <% }
         ut.commit();

   %>
