thoughts on dtos
Firstly, great work with Roo. I was curious to know what had happened to this project as I remember you presenting it a couple of years ago so it's great to see it all come to fruition.
When you last presented on it, you had some features around managing dtos and conversion to / from domain objects. I'm curious to know both what your position on this approach is now and whether you have or intend to provide support within ROO for this in the future ? It seems that many, if not all of these ultra productive frameworks promote dealing with domain objects from web to pertistence layer which is fine in a lot of cases but not always what we want. Obviously ROO is flexible enough to allow us to implement our own service layer and dto conversion but if ROO has plans for helping make this problem simpler to work with that would be excellent!
