DAO Refactoring: Taking on the Approval Service

10 April 2009

Quite some time ago, I took on the process of refactoring all of the DAO components in the Notification Service and the Look-up Table service. I went through a number of variations, all based on the initial inspiration, and eventually settled on a final version for the foundation. I did not, however, go all the way back and tackle the Approval Service or the Authorization Service, as those were built back in the days before I had fully embraced the AppFuse model, Spring, and all of the related benefits of that particular approach.

In attempting to put together the stand-alone, ready-to-wear zip file of all of these little services, I have come to the realization that it is high time to bite the bullet and just dive in and make these older services look and operate just like the newer ones. That’s actually a little more work than simply DAO refactoring, but it’s as good an explanation of the endeavor as any at this point.

Anyway, that’s the general idea … we’ll have to wait and see how it all turns out.
