Would it be safe to assume that if I had a synchronized DAO for each model
that implements an interface too each with access to XML resources. So when my JDesktopPnane builds each JTabbedPane with the corresponding view GUI panel that I could have the code in the in each GUI panel to send the needed query name from XML to the interface for the each DAO and populate components on the GUI when they are built? and or any other actioncomand performed?

could this act as binding the view to the model?
thanks

Presently the app builds panels after login depending on the profile. the adminBean becomes an instance of the adminDAO that implements the AdminDAO interface. I have not actually ever used the interface part but it looks like I should be able to have methods that would return result sets back to the adminPanel.
could someone give me a way to test if the interface could be called from the adminPanel (table) to use this interface and have it add some kind of data to a component on the admin panel?
just an empty JTable. any other simple component would surfice
