3.7. Looking Ahead...
We've covered a lot of ground in these first few chapters. We now have a single EAR file that encapsulates many moving parts of our J2EE application. We have automated the build process where it is appropriate, and set the stage for future growth.
In the next several chapters, we'll leave the web tier and move on to the persistence tier. We've stored our DTOs in an ArrayList for long enoughlet's tackle saving them in a true database.
