Hi! I'm Jeff. Nice to meet you.

I am currently an engineer at Google (Maps for Android) in Mountain View, CA, though my opinions and advice are my own.

Though I like helping with any answers I can, I am found most often on StackOverflow. I particularly like helping debug and explain Guice and Mockito, which I count as two of the most-powerful (and sometimes least-intuitive) packages available in Java today.

comment What is the advantage of wrapping exceptions
Should you have a copy of Josh Bloch's Effective Java Second Edition laying around, item 61 ("Throw exceptions appropriate to the abstraction") describes this well.
