Hi Guys,

I'm in the initial stages of learning EJBs and Struts.

My question is - When I say ....I'm using Struts in a Project it means i'm using MVC model-2. And in the same project can I use EJB's . If Yes, can you explain in terms of using Struts and EJBs combinely.


Thank You,
Jagadeesh

Hi,

If you would like to combine both EJB and Struts together, here is what we normally do.

Struts will only manage the flow of the application as well as doing all the validation to and from JSP. JSP interacts with Struts. Then Struts action will call the method in the session bean to do all the business logic. Normally, business logics are located in session bean and not in the Struts.

Yes you can use EJBs in the same project. JSPs via Struts will be there for the View (i.e. for displaying the data to the user), EJB and struts action classes will be the controller (i.e. will be loading the data from the database and will do the appropriate actions, e.g. calculate things etc) and the data in the database will be the Model. You will need to be calling EJBs from your JSP pages.

You have suggested to make EJBs as Controller and call them through JSP that is not a good practice.
Generally, only business logic should be written in EJB.
Only Struts ActionServlets and struts-config.xml should only be the controller.
And your Action classes should call EJB which contains the core business Logic.

Actually no. I have suggested to use EJBs *and* Struts actions as controller :)

But I will agree with you, it's not a good practice to call EJBs straight from JSP, although nothing prevents you of doing so.
