We discuss some of the challenges that are inherent to programming business applications for disconnected environments, and outline various programming models that address these challenges. We focus especially on a transparent programming model that uses a “log/replay” approach, and describe our experiences in implementing this programming model as middleware that supports disconnected Enterprise JavaBeans applications.
