The Duke's Bank Application

This chapter describes the Duke's Bank application, an online banking application. Duke's Bank has two clients: an application client used by administrators to manage customers and accounts, and a web client used by customers to access account histories and perform transactions. The clients access the customer, account, and transaction information maintained in a database through enterprise beans. The Duke's Bank application demonstrates the way that many of the component technologies presented in this tutorial--enterprise beans, application clients, and web components--are applied to provide a simple but functional application.

Figure 36-1 gives a high-level view of how the components interact. This chapter looks at each of the component types in detail and concludes with a discussion of how to build, deploy, and run the application.
