comment Static factory vs factory as a singleton
@bstempi: true, I'm a bit off topic here. The point was simply that if static are bad design (good point by Mike), singleton would only make it worse. That said, the simplicity of the chosen answer makes the argument moot. :)

comment Static factory vs factory as a singleton
You want some strong arguments against singleton? There you go: jalf.dk/blog/2010/03/… I'm curious what your reviewer thinks a singleton would bring to the table that you don't already have with a static object. More often than not, a singleton makes your design worse.

That's one massive argument supporting TDD. :)

I can't see anything wrong with thinking through the problem on paper first.

comment Should We Code for Performance or Stability?
@gbjbaanb: the fact unmaintainable code exists doesn't mean it is preferable. As you say, those companies still use that code. So what if it has to be changed? What if they discover a case where it doesn't work? Code is not carved in stone, and this is why "if its maintainable then it can be fixed" is important.

comment Design: Calling back to the parent class
Does the child need to know all about the parent, or would a simple delegate be sufficient?

@ReinHenrichs: that said, I agree if we had to stick with only one, it would be that code should work, period.

comment Should We Code for Performance or Stability?
@ReinHenrichs: because if it's maintainable, it can be fixed, which is much better than having code that works^W is believed to work but nobody can deal with.

Then profile it. You can't work on performance without data, and if data shows performance is not an issue, then you win on management too.
