The Simple Persist Module

This module defines two very simple Data Access Objects (DAOs). A DAO is an object that provides an interface for persistence operations. In an application that makes use of an Object-Relational Mapping (ORM) framework such as Hibernate, DAOs are usually defined around objects. In this project, we are defining two DAO objects: WeatherDAO and LocationDAO. The WeatherDAO class allows us to save a Weather object to a database and retrieve a Weather object by id, and to retrieve Weather objects that match a specific Location. The LocationDAO has a method that allows us to retrieve a Location object by zip code. First, let’s take a look at the simple-persist POM in Example 7-8.
