comment Correct Pass along in Service oriented architecture
I think having a payment service and an operation called MakePayment(PaymentInformatoin paymentInfomation) would be sufficient instead of 3 separate processors.

comment How to deal with misconceptions about “premature optimization is the root of all evil”?
@Steven - Sorry I didn't mean to dismiss performance problems of any software application. I guess I should have used an example. The speed of adding items to a shopping cart versus a real time missile tracking system. If it takes an extra second to add an item to the cart, not a big deal, but a second with a missile traveling at near the speed of sound would have a much bigger implication. So, speed of processing is vital in that scenario.

!@Greg - I agree, usually the "usings" are related. I think in this case it's a case over abstraction because about 15-20 of the "usings" come from application namespaces and the rest from .net framework.

comment What to do with database foreign keys in an entity class?
The Ids could have private setters. One could have a constructor that accepts them and sets them. This could be done in the data access layer. When you new up an object, these are set to zero indicating fresh relationships. These would differentiate other 'attributes' that provide public getters and setters like fname.

comment How to deal with extended testing times?
@Robbie - I guess my answer would be, automate everything. While tests are running, I am doing other things, and they run many times throughout the day (during and after every build). All the tests are automated as part of build and/or post deployment activities. Result collection is also automated as well as we get emails and have dashboards up on monitors review test results. The only time I spend on times is maybe fixing a broken on or writing a new one(s). They are part of my day, but are not taxing me mentally.
