Domain-Driven Design (DDD) promises to simplify enterprise application development and is gradually gaining traction as an alternative to traditional tiered architectures originally popularized by J2EE. As the name implies, DDD is an architectural approach that strongly focuses on materializing the business domain in software.

This video demonstrates first-hand how DDD can be implemented using Java EE via an Open Source project named Cargo Tracker. Part of the Java EE Blue Prints, Cargo Tracker seamlessly maps DDD concepts like bounded contexts, layered architectures, entities, value objects, aggregates, services, repositories and factories to Java EE code examples in a realistic, non-trivial application.
