Class DataManager


public final class DataManager
extends java.lang.Object
Data Manager - provides finder methods in this example, placeholder for whatever persistence framework/strategies may be in use.
If DAOs come into play, you would have to decide where to place the calls to the identity map. On the one hand logically the lookup belongs ON TOP of the DAO layer, introducing an extra layer (yuck!).
On the other hand INSIDE DAO would be convenient to reduce lines of code.
But with different DAOs (for XML, Oracle, MySQL), which is the primary reason for implementing a DAO-layer, the identity map lookup code inside the DAO would have to be duplicated (yuck! again).
One solution to this dilemma could be an abstract DAO base class containing a generic identity map lookup procedure.
