comment What is needed write an interface to Microsoft Dynamics GP web services?
@Mike sorry, I forgot to edit the question when I put the bounty on it. We got past the whole on-the-fence about buying it because the boss wants to use it in house for our own accounting (and dogfooding) purposes. Now, we just want to connect to it from something outside the CLR.

comment Is there a design pattern for updating lists?
This code will be in Java, the problem is the list is modified in Delphi and marshalled/bound into XML and unmarshalled in Java. I can load up the original list in java as well as the original rights list in java. Oh well, this is seems like a good solution to me. The description of the decorator pattern really seems like it fits the bill.

Thanks, that might be the best way of doing it - coworker suggested the same thing to me. I'll have to add HowModified to like 9000 objects, but oh well.

@RobertHarvey preserving the relative order of the merged lists is important. People are going to see things in a listbox in my program, save their screen and see all the things they changed at the bottom

comment How to write camel case for words like “phonenumber”, “motorcycle”, “wavelength”, etc
@909Niklas I'd drop "name" entirely as much as possible. Just use "street" If it's a string, it's a name unless that's detrimental or confusing. username is what it is, it's a call sign, not the "user's name", so it's more like motorcycle than firstName or lastName (which should be camelcased)

Closed as opinion based because Code Complete is primarily opinion based. Aren't there any Bell Labs studies from the 70's someone can cite to prove that people are going to write 40% more bugs if you camelcase userName?

@svidgen do you remember what your place had to do to get it's hands on a test copy of GP, do you absolutely have to buy it just to code to it? It's just painful since it costs as much as many shiny new Delphis.

meta note dynamics is the stackoverflow tag for microsoft dynamics, I wanted to use it here, but it wouldn't let me, I didn't think it was a big enough deal to bring up on meta.

comment Is there a standard for encoding recurring patterns of dates?
Thanks for this, if you added some examples, I'd find this to be a very complete answer, not sure why the questions was closed it's got a fairly straightforward answer (although the cron idea probably would work too, this is more helpful because of exchange interoperability), I just couldn't think of the wording for the question when I was looking it up on Google so the word "abbreviated" got in there.

@MichaelT there's nothing in there for "every other day" or "odd numbered days" or "the third friday in march"

@RobertHarvey I mean standards for storing that information outside of serialized objects. I'll edit the question.

comment Why did Embarcadero make me sign a waiver?
@ThomasOwens OK, but is it talking about a Brazilian contracted to create software for Iran or someone reselling Delphi to Iran? I wonder if developers in other languages using purchased IDE's have to undergo the same scrutiny

comment Why did Embarcadero make me sign a waiver?
@MichaelT yeah, I know about wassanal or whatever, but this doesn't even mention that encryption and all the encryption libraries in Delphi are 3rd party/open source jobbers unaffiliated with Embarcadero directly.

I think you understood the question and thanks for the Yes, but do you know if it's ever been done successfully?

comment Delphi Build Server - Do I need to check in .dres files?
I just want to say that I really love StackExchange! thanks for answering, maybe I should have just asked here! I didn't even think to though as I just ask all my programming questions here or on stackoverflow (or the deeper programming questions on Christianity)

comment What would be a few ideas/concepts from programming that I can have on paper and hang on a wall as art?
I just found this site and remembered this question which was obviously destined to be closed, but I don't think anyone will mind if I mention something in a comment eh?

Not that I know anything about what you're talking about, but is Basic supposed to be capitalized in this question?

@ThomasOwens this would be like me asking on Christianity if the Summa Theologica is still the Summa Theologica. I think I'm beginning to see your reasoning, but I still think it's wrong.
