You need to ask this question on Stackoverflow.com. There are already answers there relevant to your question. This is a forum to talk about programming issues and problems. FYI: stackoverflow.com/questions/2679362/…

comment What is the use of Association, Aggregation and Composition (Encapsulation) in Classes
Please note that Aggregation, Composition and Association are not techniques to implement encapsulation. An encapsulation can also exist even if there is just one class/object. Encapsulation is just an essential feature to in Object Orientation to hide your object's data.

comment What is the use of Association, Aggregation and Composition (Encapsulation) in Classes
Automatic Memory Management has nothing to do with object relationships. An object diagram itself tells the programmer how to code the classes, their interfaces and their methods as per the requirements of the system under consideration.

comment Jargon to describe unnecessary running of code?
@imel96 Code bloat generally refers to source code size (as produced by the programmer), but sometimes is used to refer instead to the generated code size or even the binary file size. The question is about the running of unnecessary code, not the code itself.

comment where do you track team Decisions
It all bolis down to how you organize and review your past retrospective sessions. While reviewing, a project manager should ask what was the prbable cause of making a decision and carrying out a certain line of action in a certain iteration. For this reason people often use an agile project management software to track and organize project histories.

comment Why does the Scrum guide say no testers?
@MichaelBorgwardt Very true! But what if you find your tester busy in unit testing which is primarily a developer's job? I feel the former option should only be availed when it comes to code optimizatiion and application scalability, etc. What do you say?

comment Why does the Scrum guide say no testers?
TDD would be a better approach for startup teams. I have strongly felth that when testers and developers work together in novice teams, testing becomes an issue. What do you say?

comment What are abstract classes and abstract methods?
I do agree with you partially. We can use overloaded constructors (POLYMORPHISM) for Infant, Child, Adult instead of deriving child classes(INHERITANCE). But what makes you say about Man and Woman to be represented as enumerated fields. Why? They are perfect for to be inherited classes. The example i just gave is for the novice learner. Thanks for your feedback.

comment Is a functional spec a part of the System requirement spec?
"Functional Requirements" and "Functional Specs" are two different things. An SRS covers Business, User, Functional, and Non-Functional Requirements in general. While a Functional Specs document consists of each and every minute detail about the Purpose and processes of the methods involved.

Or does your phrase "As you gather more expereince" simply referring to Design Patterns?

comment How can I better manage far-reaching changes in my code?
You are right to say that refactoring and architecting the code is curcially important in larger systems. But in the last paragraph, when you start saying "As you gather more expereince"....then would'nt it be worth mentioing about Business Analysis. Because a Software Engineer of who has like 10 years of expereince on architecting an ERP for the Aviation industry has to talk to a BA when being switched to desinging or architecting an ERP for the Healthcare industry. What is your opinion?

comment Best practice to represent SQL in program source code
That approach is debatable. Reading from a text file is more costly then from a table.

comment Better word for Optional Requirements?
@ Yannis Rizos When i said "Optional Requirements will always be a part of Software Engineering", I meant that in conceptual context. As engineering is about working out an effective solution within budget while balancing conflicting requirements. Also the asker never mentions Optional Requirement as a term here in the question and neither did I.
