comment Is it bad coding practice to create something in a get if it does not exist?
@kevincline, I guess I was thinking about it in terms of, let's say, charging my credit card. If the server charges my card based on a GET request but still gives me a result like "declined" every time I run it, that feels like it goes against the spirit of GET. With that said, I do see your point. The server could count the number of GET requests and lock me out after 3 queries, thereby rate limiting me, but without changing any details of my account. I do think that's an important distinction when one says the server state isn't modified. Perhaps I should say "client state on server" instead

revised Do you think code is self documenting?
added a link to Jeff's blog article detailing the subject, which seems to be where this idea comes from.

comment How can a manager ensure developers are pushing up to the origin every day?
@bogeyc - There's some HR processes that can fix "not smart". I believe it's known as "termination". :D But I get what you're saying and agree 100%... you can't really treat knowledge workers like we're part of a manufacturing process.

Unfortunately, not every developer is smart.

comment Does anyone know of a simple (free?) feature request tracking system we could use internally for sales people?
Sure @MuhammadUmer, and a bug tracking software solution and mailing list is perfect for documenting what users want. However, the point of my post is this: Don't go off trying to build bug tracking software yourself if you're actually tasked with building sales CRM software. Your sales CRM software will suck if your engineers get distracted by trying to build other things, especially when there are already great bug tracking and mailing list solutions in the market. Hope this helps clarify. :)

comment What is the proper way to extract and pass parameters to call javascript functionality from my PHP page?
Oh okay, @http203, that would be the module pattern, and you can expose any function you need access to via window.Class = Class or window.myMethod = myMethod. Not sure if this helps or not. Good luck!

brought in the function from the link so the answer here is more self contained. In the process I also did some copy editing to fix some spelling and grammar.

The server is writing an ID to the client, and then the client turns around and makes another request to the server to get more data. Could you simplify things by just making a getJSON request with the original ID, or is that not available to you at the time? As for putting JavaScript in it's own scope, are you referring to the Constructor or Module patterns? You can encapsulate some functions but still make your public ones public.

Nice username. :) Are you saying the queries are in JavaScript? You might need to show an example jut so we all can see. Hope this helps.

comment How can I keep Web services requests in a DAO layer without tying the code to the DOM?
@ZippyV - Interesting concept, and it's one I considered. However, I'm not sure I'd personally go that route because of the overhead of maintaining updates, but you should totally consider adding that as an answer, assuming you can add more details. Someone else with this same problem might find that to be quite actionable. :)
