For what it's worth - a lot of the ideas in PEAK started to clear up 
for me after I read "Patterns of Enterprise Application Architecture" 
by Martin Fowler.  At least now I can understand what the role of the 
DataManager and domain models are supposed to be within the context of 
an application.

Taking a peak (no pun intended) at the bulletins example application 
should also help out.  There's still nothing like working code to give 
you an idea of how stuff works - even if some bits of code in there 
aren't necessarily the best way of doing things.
