comment Spring MVC vs raw servlets and template engine?
My mind is not made up; I'm trying really hard to see the benefit of Spring MVC. But for every example I see, the Spring way is more complicated than servlets + template engine.

comment Spring MVC vs raw servlets and template engine?
I like Spring's JDBC library, but it is separate from MVC, as is internationalization etc. For the rest, those are theoretical benefits I've seen listed but no example of how it actually makes anything simpler.

comment Why are statements in many programming languages terminated by semicolons?
A language like Python would have been infeasible for the computers that existed in the early days of C. Using a statement termination character makes the parsing simpler, and it was very important to reduce the memory and CPU load of compilers decades ago. Especially on those computers where you paid for CPU time by the second.

comment Convince a lone developer to use a separate build tool instead of the IDE one-click build
I'll continue with the one-click IDE build until the first beta is out. Then I'm planning to use Maven. Ant seems to create more work than it would save for my situation, but Maven appears to be straightforward enough and powerful enough to be worth it. For me it is not just a question of whether there is a benefit to having the build tool; I also weigh the cost of learning it, setting it up and maintaining it.
