This chapter describes the Duke’s Bank application, an online banking application. Duke’s Bank has two clients: a J2EE 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 how all the component technologies—enterprise beans, J2EE application clients, and Web components—presented in this tutorial are put together to provide a simple but functional application.
