In this scenario the treatment of model changes applies to parts of the model that might be cached in the Web server tier.

Value Objects A value object is a business object that can be passed by value. and immutable. A value object can also be used to encapsulate a serializable version of an entire remote object. The pass-byvalue semantics can be achieved by implementing the object as a serializable Java object. An object is a dependent object of another object if its life cycle is completely managed by that object and if it can only be accessed indirectly through that object. Inventory. Dependent objects have no set methods. and Order) for each enterprise bean. Account. A business concept should be implemented as a value object when it is fine-grained.
