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 Why can't SQL return joined tables in a nested format?
Hibernate will retrieve the root entity and certain collections in a single query when the eager fetch mode is used for those collections; in that case it does the reduction of root entity properties in memory. Other ORMs can likely do the same.

comment Is over-engineering a warning sign?
@Nim - I think Karl's point is that what you consider overengineering, other interviewers may consider a good representation of the interviewee's grasp of OOD. The reference to pseudo-code may not be as explicit as you think in describing the type of approach that you expect.

comment project with 2 types of interfaces performing different jobs, should they use the same BLL and DAL?
I don't have experience with VS, but I would try splitting each of those libraries into 2. One with base functionality, and one with advanced functionality. The desktop app would depend on only the base library, and the webapp would depend on both the base and advanced functionality libraries.

How to achieve it depends on entirely on your build system.

Is your business and data access logic so unique as to warrant the extra work? Even if so, it should be possible to include only the modules or packages that the desktop app requires at build time.

If you're in doubt, don't make any guesses. Professionals back up their hunches with data.

I tried to improve the grammar, but I'm unclear on the meaning of your second GUI-related requirement.

comment Performance related doubt in Java with Hibernate
If you find performance problems because Hibernate is running too many queries or retrieving data sub-optimally, you can customize almost all of how it fetches data instead of dropping it altogether.
