comment Is Template Pattern a good way to implement DRY?
There's value in supplying the real name of the myMethod and the classes. Semantics are part of the design and provide insight when looking at what's repeating.

comment Data Mapper pattern vs. model encapsulation
my model fields where nicely encapsulated and only had getters -- some might say this is a contradiction.

@MichaelT the PlantUML guys already made a fix, e.g., plantuml.com/plantuml/?metadata=http://i.stack.imgur.com/…

comment Help in understanding computer science, programming and abstraction
@MichaelT it works with PlantUML locally (-metadata option), but I don't think they have a cloud service yet (github.com/plantuml/plantuml-server/issues/21). I'll put my PlantUML diagrams on imgur from now on since I can get back the source. Thanks for the draw.io example.

PlantUML image hosted now on imgur. Can recover it with PlantUML.jar locally, but no cloud service (yet). See https://github.com/plantuml/plantuml-server/issues/21

comment Help in understanding computer science, programming and abstraction
@MichaelT I like that example. I think PlantUML has a recover feature. I'll see if I can get it to work.

comment Help in understanding computer science, programming and abstraction
@MichaelT Not sure how to comment on this, but I rolled back the edit because the Image is important to stress "real world objects" (LRG) and putting the UML image on IMGUR will lose its source code (the plantuml URL has a key that is a hash of the code to edit the image, as well as the SVG format of the diagram contains text that can be indexed by web crawlers).

comment “Selected design can be derived from requirements” - meaning and difference against traceability?
Normally standards define terms like correctness and derive. Does 12207 do that?

comment Why should a builder be an inner class instead of in its own class file?
I think the real test to see if a Builder implementation holds up to the GoF definition is to make a new variant of a concrete builder. If the concrete builder (or its abstract hierarchy) is somehow nested as an inner class, I can't see how the design can be extended.
