View Full Version : J2EE GXT application with or without EJB

7 Jan 2011, 11:41 AM
I am a new comer into GWT, GXT and J2EE technology, after studying I will have to choose a design pattern and a technology to implement our project in line with the J2EE architecture.
Anytime people talk about J2EE, they always refer to EJB, even though there are several explanations on when to use EJB and when not to, but it is not yet clear for me. I was told in this forum that GXT with J2EE is possible. So here is my question.
Can a large GXT J2EE application with only MVP architecture that does not use EJB be as scalable, reliable, robust, extensible, maintainable... as the one using EJBs ? For instance and ERP that include HR Management, Payroll Management, Supply chain management, Finance management...

I dont fully understand how this is related to GXT. But sure it can. EJB is just a technology which you dont have to use, but if you need features it has, why not use it?
