comment Removing occurrences of characters in a string
There's an error in the book's code. The len in the first for loop should be the remove characters length, not the source characters length.

comment Can I use these terms “patch”, “update”, “commit” interchangeably?
In the distant past, a patch referred to a change in the object binary code, while an update was made to the source code.

comment scrabble solving with maximum score
Assuming the list is short (say, 7 characters), you could read through the dictionary. For every dictionary word you can make with your list of characters, calculate the score. If the score is higher than the previously saved word and score, save the current word and score.

comment What principle is violated by having a button do two radically different things or screens act radically different depending on the situation
Make the developer use one of these confusing user interfaces. Barring that, make the developer describe how the constant positioning of buttons and menu items on his favorite IDE contributes to his productivity.

comment how to introduce a culture of quality into the work environment?
No. Your manager has said that code quality is not a concern. Wishing that code quality is a concern will not make it so. Either accept the work culture or find another position where code quality is more important.

comment Does Separation of Concerns applies to GUI components?
My main concern when creating a GUI is, is it usable? Does it help the user get his work done? If separate modes makes life easier for the user, then fine. If not, change your GUI to make it more usable.

comment Object Oriented Analysis and Design workflow for developer working alone
You asked about analysis and design, while your steps are for data modeling only. You still have to sketch out a GUI and / or any reports that your system will produce. Since you're working alone, you don't have to follow any set of steps in order. You can draw a GUI, then see what objects you need to hold the GUI information, then maybe build enough of the GUI to do some user interface testing.

@l46kok: I guess you can check the clock change and ignore small changes (on the order of a few minutes) and process large changes (on the order of multiple days).

I generally use a different controller class for each event because I prefer simplicity over reducing code duplication in my designs.

comment How did programming work when programmers used punchcards?
Not only were the programs punched on cards, the input data and output data was punched on cards. Cards were the primary form of storage in the late 70's and early 80's. Disk space was too expensive to be used for anything other than the compiler and loader.

comment Creating a calendar/planner program. Confused about OO logic?
There's already a Calendar class in Java. Is your planner going to handle things like "The book club meets on the second Tuesday of the month at 7 pm."?

comment What is the advantage of 'SwingUtilities.invokeLater()' method?
Oracle says to invoke a Swing application with SwingUtilities.invokeLater, and that's a good enough reason for me.
