comment Correct definition of the term “Yak Shaving”
I need to implement a search on a new entity in my application. I already have a pretty general search on another entity type and would like to reuse some of that, but I have to refactor it to generalize it. Unfortunately, there is a dependency on an enum that is specific to the old entity, so I needed to find a way to generalize a Java enum. I did a Google search to look for strategies to accomplish that and wound up at StackOverflow. I had something in my inbox, I opened it and happened to see an interesting question on StackExchange and now I'm reading about (and writing about) Yak Shaving.
