comment Is a long XSLT file a code smell?
"long" is always relative. In itself there's nothing wrong with long, as long as it's not needlessly long... If something can be cut into pieces without losing performance and without creating unacceptable overhead,..

comment DTO and JPA Version
@BartvanIngenSchenau one reason may be to check for stale data, verify that the record in the database hasn't been changed since the data presented to the user who submits the update is written.

comment What is the best way to store a formula in a database for a table driven formula?
asking for "best" anything is automatically asking for opinions...

comment Isn't there a substantial problem with SVN tags?
well said. So much disinformation in the original post and comments it reads almost like a religious rant by a fanatical git user...

comment Store generated image in database or generate it on server/client
which'd be preferable depends in part at least on the size of the data and the time needed to generate it.

comment Website form testing
@MainMa because which tool/method would be most appropriate depends heavily on the specifics of your system, which you don't specify in nearly enough detail.

comment When should you avoid iterative and incremental development?
@Giorgio yes, it is, kinda. And it's something you see a lot. Incremental changes in testable chunks towards a well defined end result. If the desired end result isn't known before you start the project, there's really no need to start, is there? Of course the desired result can change during development but you must have some idea of what you're going to make before you begin else you may start building a bike and end up with a space shuttle :)

<ctd> Especially since our contacts in the organisations are flexible enough to make minor changes in the supposedly unchangeable HLD as needed when requirements and insights change during development and testing.

comment When should you avoid iterative and incremental development?
you can develop modules iteratively, and have the project as a whole be delivered only when everything is complete. We're doing that right now on another project. We're having to deal with 2 organisations during development, one wants to use SCRUM and the other's firmly stuck in a waterfall setting. So we're using SCRUM internally, but only the final product will be delivered to the maintenance organisation who accept or reject the product based on a high level requirements document they produce a year or more before development even starts. It's not ideal, but it works.

@Telastyn the bridge does benefit too. You don't deliver a bridge on each iteration, of course. First iteration is a wind tunnel model, second iteration may be the casings for the pillars, third could be a segment of roadway, etc. etc.
