comment In reality, a developer also administers DBMS and system?
You're not alone. I do everything (and I do mean everything) at my company as well. DBA, sysadmin, programmer, web developer, user support, networking, the works.

comment The suffix Exception on exceptions in java
Also, I've heard that as a general rule 'classes should be nouns and methods should be verbs (actions)'. FileNotFound ArrayIndexOutOfBounds and OutOfMemory are more observations/descriptions, but are then applied to the noun Exception.
