You're mixing up some things: Java doesn't have DTs as well. The
application server may provide them. Since neither the CLI nor
Mono defines an app sever, you need, like for Java, a third
party product.

If you find a way to communicate with the Java/AppServer/Hibernate
backend (take a look at MainSoft's products), you won't need DTs
for Mono.
