comment Web application (Spring, JSF) forks, how to reuse existing code for subprojects?
do you implement component model and SoC? en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Component_model en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Separation_of_concerns. if so, i would not concern myself with what MIGHT be needed in the future and dump all COMMON COMPONENTS into the API and gradually, as the need arises for customizing a previously common component, move it into the forks. again, don't concern yourself with what MIGHT be needed in the future, start with what's needed today.

By isolating a common, core API into its own project and using it as a library for each fork

comment Multithreading synchronization interview question: Find n words given m threads
i get it @Blrfl. it's kind of like i need to verify you know how to use tool X but was too lazy or sloppy to design an authentic application use case scenario that genuinely warrants the use of that tool so i just grabbed whatever was first at hand and pigeonholed my example into it sloppily. frankly, if i were asked that in an interview, i'd call him out on it and probably wouldn't wanna work with someone sloppy and halfast like that

comment Multithreading synchronization interview question: Find n words given m threads
if "each thread should print one word and give the control to next thread", that sounds like serial work, i.e. one thread is waiting for the previous one to finish and it's like passing a relay. why not just make it a single-threaded app in that case?

comment What's a good strategy for managing static data in an SOA?
can you have a comprehensive config REST call with all the static data that you load once when the application starts? rather than calling them every time you need it.

@msell, that may be a solution for my frustrations. is that part of Google API?

in that case the X,Y can be percentages on the X and Y coords so the position changes with the window size. E.g. if you wanted it to be in the middle, you'd set 50,50 etc.

comment Simple dependency tree diagram generator
i agree, i love trees. i'm a data tree hugger. as much as i would love to write a tool like that myself, it wouldn't feel right to reinvent the wheel. the answer below seems to be exactly what i need
