Having your db and jvm on the same machine would be fine for development, but not recomended in a production environment, especially if you are talking about a high volume application. Your box would then be responsible for both the work load of the site and the work load of the db.

Anyway you look at it, you are going to have to deal with some network overhead. Minimizing this to the least number of network calls what you should be striving for. The book describes a very well, thought out, DAO package. Eliminate EJBs altogether and use the DAO. You can cache the data from the DAO and have JMS send notifications on when the db has changed.

I hope this helps.
