comment Should I test inherited methods?
@gnasher729 I say "I don't need to test X in the subclass because it is already tested in the unit tests for the superclass". Of course, if you change the implementation of X, you have to write appropriate tests for it.

comment Why is it bad to write something in language X as if you're writing a program in language Y in terms of using a shared coding paradigm
Somewhat related ;-) Write program in your favorite language in another language (note: that's a joke)

I don't even know ... how they relate to each other. Maybe this post is useful for you: How do the different technologies used for programming webapplications in Java work together?

comment Why doesn't Java String have static string manipulation methods?
@ADTC Erm, you do realize that a program can't predict in advance that a value is null, right? - You should define the contracts between your interfaces in a way that you can be sure if a value is allowed to be null or not. Null-checking everywhere means you have a program design issue.

@ADTC let's put the question the other way round: Why should "Java designers" include something into the language, if there are already lots of good libraries out there, well tested and documented? How to define a "basic feature" is opinion based. Doesn't mostly every project need some external library for "Basic functionality" (unit testing, mocking, date and time,...)? It ain't a big deal, is it?
