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 I write tests for code that's driving Robot and other external features?
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?

comment Select custom output formats from database with SQL
Usually the REST service is the interface to any number of client systems; why does your data access layer need to be available for multiple languages? This sounds like a YAGNI situation to me.
