When a collection is marked as lazy, is there some way to initialize the collection with zero elements? I have a business object that holds a lazy collection and I need to pass that business object back up to the Servlet layer. Anytime the client code using the business object acceeses the collection an exception is thrown as the session is not alive. The solution the book provides for this would be to copy the object into a value holder and pass it back. This would entail creating parallel class hierarchies that I want to avoid.
Thanks in advance,
