* The examples are intentionally kept quite simple, so don't wonder why your real-life app seems to be "overcomplex". It surely isn't. DAOs are a very good way to retrieve data from a database, as long as they are used in many other classes. If there is only one class performing a certain db query (and no other predictable scenario in the future) I wouldn't create a DAO cause this only blows up the complexity. If there's no need for something and you still use it, then it's "pattern madness". But that's just my opinion and there surely are other opinion about this, too ;).

* Unfortunately there's no attribute "required" for @RequestParameter like @In or @Out have, and so it always must be set when invoking one of the methods of your bean. I don't know exactly how your app works, but maybe you can use @In(required=false) instead of @RequestParameter? I even believe that this is the way it was meant to in Seam. RequestParameter seems to me to be just a little... well... accomodation to the old fashioned way of passing data from one page to another;).
