comment Upgrading inherited 3rd party code with changes
I could give it a shot, but I think you're right about #1 being the safest route, especially since I have no experience with the codebase. I don't have any way of knowing if the previous maintainer made changes when he checked in service releases over the last two years.

Shoot, I was really hoping there would be come git magic, I'll have to see if I can scrounge up the version of the code he updated to. That's the hard part, I've only got bits and pieces.

comment Should a bin directory be full of shell scripts?
@GlenH7 it's actually about code in a package I'm responsible for maintaining. Or to be more specific, code that copies scripts into the /opt/bin folder en masse. I know it's blurring the lines, but I'm a programmer, not a system administrator... Jim.

comment Should maven generate jaxb java code or just use java code from source control?
I was going to -1 this answer because it just refutes the premises but since I so wholeheartedly agree with you, I'd rather just -2 everyone who checks in generated code.

@sleske we were putting the XSD's in the same packages as POJO's that used them. One guy was even using the protected members of the generated code directly (that guy is going to be sad soon).

@randomA they're all homemade (except one or two we got from the government) and very frequently changed right now as we're in the process of converting from a straight up client-database program to something that uses axis-2 in between. XSD's are really nice because of marshalling between delphi and java

@randomA but you still don't touch the generated code right?

My problem is that we update the schemas all the time, you think that would change the way you do things?

comment Should I return from a function early or use an if statement?
yeah, I like that new feature although is seems like it's just candy to appease Java programmers, next thing you know they'll be letting us define our variables inside the procedures.
