I'm creating an Eclipse RCP application that will run on multiple computers and interact with a shared networked database. When using EclipseLink, how do you manage EntityManagers for each of the clients, and how do other clients get informed of changes in other persistence contexts?

I've thought about using web services or RMI, but I would think there's a more elegant approach. Eeach client needs to somehow get an EntityManager. I was thinking of having a headless client that would interact with all the clients and do the actual persisting.

I appreciate your thought, ideas, and feedback. Please point me in the direction of articles you know about that discuss this topic.

Either each client accesses the database directly, and either does not use caching, or make use of invalidation, refreshing, database events, cache coordination, or other mechanisms.

Or, you have a three tier architecture with each client accessing a server which accesses the database. The client would still not use caching, but the server could.
