comment Why JSP over Servlets for view?
I know that they're tightly coupled, but the compilation into a servlet really shouldn't be a thought when writing a JSP.

comment How to Mentor a Junior Developer
If you want a solution "on a plate" you will never grow out of your status as a junior developer. Learning from complete solutions given to you might be possible but it certainly isn't effective. That's how the brain works: If you experience the way to the solution, not just the solution itself, you'll learn a lot more than just studying the solution somebody else presented to you.

comment Is it possible to combine programming languages?
I don't think that's what the original poster meant. The resulting bytecode has very little to do with the way it was written in the language from which it was compiled.

comment Why is Scheme my first language in university?
That's definitely true! That's why I wrote "might" instead of "are" :-)

comment What does Google or Microsoft get by hosting JS files on their Content Delivery Networks (CDN)?
Yes they do - but that's not necessarily the case for every file hosted on a CDN. I've seen - and used - URLs like http://somewhere/file-2.Latest.js where you'll always get the latest build in the 2.x branch.
