Title: Method and apparatus for generating a service data object based service pattern for an enterprise Java beans model

Abstract: A method and apparatus for generating a service data object based service pattern for an EJB model is provided. Definitions of session bean facade, SDOs, and queries are defined in entity beans. When the definitions are processed, SDOs, related SDOs, and queries for SDOs are added to the session bean facade. At run time, a client may manipulate the SDOs and apply changes to the SDOs via a mediator obtained from a mediator cache. The mediator persists the SDOs to a data graph without interfering the entity bean.
