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 avoid excessive method overloading?
Using a dictionary as a parameter is an easy way to reduce the number of apparent parameters to a method, but it obscures the actual dependencies of the method. This forces the caller to look elsewhere for what exactly needs to be in the dictionary, whether that be in comments, other calls to the method, or the method implementation itself.

Sure. It sounds like the challenge was to figure out a solution without changing the subroutines.

That's a very long code sample; consider shortening it or describing in words the various 'outside world' parts that are causing you trouble.

comment How to decouple simple factory and default implementation?
This is a great answer describing differences between acceptable and unacceptable coupling. Would you care to elaborate on how to decouple the API from the implementation in this case, since that seems to be what lead to the question?
