Can someone please explain to me how large pattern example codes makes life easy? If a field is to be added to the database you have to go to the Mapper class, DataTransferObject class and the business layer and that is without looking deeper there could be more. Seems if I didn't design this and I had to maintain it this would be a lot to hunt down. I could be wrong...

Thanks
Dennis

I think it depends on what kind of application you are making. If your app is never going to need to support different kinds of UI's, will always use the same database, only logs things to one kind of storage, doesn't need to integrate with different kinds of user credentials, etc then it probably isn't worth the extra effort of making it this abstract and loosely coupled. --- David Snider  Feb 07, 2012
