I love software development, and technology of all kinds. I have a boy and a girl and a beautiful wife, all of whom I adore. I practice Southern Chinese Kung Fu, and hope that my kids will too. I write code and play boardgames in my spare time.

I currently work as a JEE engineer in Edina, MN.

comment How to properly use Hibernate
@Aaronaught - the main reason to wrap the Hibernate session in a repository or DAO abstraction is to avoid coupling your code to Hibernate.

I haven't used it all that much yet, so I can only describe what I've found useful so far. I'll update the answer.

comment Why should I use Bower?
I became aware of Bower when I bootstrapped an Angular webapp using the Angular generator for Yeoman. Trying that might give you an idea of how it can be used.

comment Is Convention Over Configuration “Knowledge in the World” or “Knowledge In Your Head”?
@JimmyHoffa - I'm curious to hear your thoughts on it.

comment Usage of magic strings/numbers
@StefanBilliet - not at all. My point is that readability is improved through consistency. The problem here is not the coding guideline itself, but a guideline taken to extremes through misunderstanding.

comment Usage of magic strings/numbers
The result of a judgement call can vary even between mature developers, so even arbitrary coding guidelines are meant to improve readability through consistency. This is unrelated to the fact that creating a constant NumberTen makes no sense.

comment Is it okay to test multiple similar files in one functional test
The if test at the end didn't make sense; fixed now. The getAllFiles() method would contain the logic to figure out what files need to be tested. I don't know of a way to create tests dynamically, but I'm sure you could do it with CGLib or similar if you really wanted to.
