comment Code maintenance: keeping a bad pattern when extending new code for being consistent, or not?
Hi Erik, sometimes a code that could have been factorized is more simpler to read: it is dozen of time the same thing and the code is straightforward. You can read it in a row without to think about it and you can debug in a linear way. There is no hidden complexity.

comment What is a good support knowledge base tool?
@Michael: your answer is a good one. I'm just looking to an alternative more tailored toward our goal. We are already using a solution quite close to the one you promote, but we feel some pain with it. The search is not helpful for our usage and I was just trying to discover what other people are using. A vast majority are using a wiki, fine. But maybe some are using other tools and are also happy. About the 'contains' search I was more talking about the fact that search engine like google are more aware of the context than a pure text based search...

comment What is a good support knowledge base tool?
We are using confluence and the search result are often not good for this kind of stuff: either too much pages are found or no page at all. It is also hard to browse all issues as a table for quick glances. Google is working with text, but I don't think they are using a simple 'contains' operation... I don't disagree about using a wiki: that what we are using now! It is much about having a proper tool to be more efficient. In a way I'm feeling being advised to use a wiki when I'm looking for something closer to a bug tracking system.

comment What is a good support knowledge base tool?
Hi Michael, we already have a wiki with WISIWYG, which is good and we are happy to use it for our regular documentation. But when it comes to organize and search across support resolution the it is useless... We need something really aimed for this kind of usecase.

comment How to ease the maintenance of event driven code?
@Giorgio, it is more or less the case (for my current problem): events can arrive in random events because the executed part is an async callback. And for the listeners/handlers they are usually registered as a well known sequence, but some extension can register their own handler. In this case the order of execution can be hard to determine without any prioritization system, and this can lead to some bugs.

comment How to ease the maintenance of event driven code?
@Emmad, this is an example and it is probably over engineered. But it has been 'designed' to solve another kind of maintenance problem. My question is more general: what are you doing when you have to deal with code that is using a lot the event driven paradigm. This kind of code can become very complicated, even in simple GUI. Some technology rely a lot on events outside GUIs, like Hibernate. I'm just trying to collect best practices and advices.

edited to reflect that sequence of exec is not very relevant with async activities
