are you assuming the code was mine to begin with ?

comment How to organize remote Git branches when team does single change releases?
but the problem with this approach is that it is hard for feature developers to refresh their local branch (and their development environment) with the ongoing changes being made by their peers. to do that, they would have to merge the changes in the integration branch into their feature branch and then rebase their local branch against that. that involves an extra step that i would like to avoid. another problem with this is that it shifts the burden of reconciling conflict upon merging to the integrator as opposed to the developer who is responsible for the conflict

comment Structuring an input file
what are the benefits of XML if his data is not hierarchical? i.e. if all can fit in a simple 2D table format, why not put it in a flat file, delimited with something (comma, tab, etc)

whoever downvoted and requested closure, i would appreciate some reasoning, thanks.

"Reproducing the bug, and fixing it and then demonstrating that the solution prevents the bug from reoccurring - that is where it should end." -- my point exactly

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.

comment Frustration with Java Swing layout managers
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
