Description: Editor's Note: J2EE and .NET are big-time enterprise architectures competing for the attention of today's developers. Both camps have reference applications to demonstrate how their architectures work. The \"standard\" for evaluation is the sample pet store (a remnant from the dot-com heydays) that is used to compare apples to apples, or maybe more appropriately, Milk Bones to Milk Bones. Recently, a third pet store demonstrating Flash and ColdFusion capabilities has entered the scene. In this article Dean Wampler provides you with an overview to Macromedia's approach to enterprise architecture, Pet Market, plus plenty of links to continue the exploration on your own.
