    Sergio is back! The true form of my joy about that is inexplicable.

    So, it seems that the main site link fix is finally applied.

  • VinDuv (disco)

    Some syntax hightlighting would be nice...

  • Ino_Bertelsen (disco)

    I like that the language doesnt understand booleans :smiley:

    String resultado = "false";

  • Eldelshell (disco) in reply to Ino_Bertelsen

    Oh! You don't want your XML with something like: <concertado type="java.lang.Boolean" value="false"/>

    TRWTF™ is Struts

    GestionSolicitudFormBean

    Paula? Is that you?

  • dkf (disco)

    At least the string written out pretending to be XML doesn't contain a NUL. That would be awful, as opposed to merely really bad…

  • tsfroggy (disco)

    Wasn't Sergio Erik Gern's beat? I hope this means that Erik doesn't write for TDWTF anymore.

  • aliceif (disco) in reply to tsfroggy

    I think Erik is the man behind Dan J. Would explain why the Shadow over ShipPoint story was so ... polarizing,

  • tsfroggy (disco) in reply to aliceif

    Honestly, I don't think it is. The writing style is quite different and way better (though it's not hard to be better than Erik's dreck.)

  • tharpa (disco)

    Is it just me who thinks it's overkill that a retirement community with hundreds of residents has a full-time developer of software?

  • dkf (disco) in reply to tharpa

    Given that the company appears to own many such communities, and I suspect that we're not so much talking “developer” as “general IT odd-job-man”, it's not so surprising.

  • delfinom (disco)

    IDK, maybe it's me but when I tried looking at the code snippet it was just a wall of naueous text, I couldn't see anything wrong just because it was so fucking impossible to get through the mental overload.

  • JazzyJosh (disco)

    So we're going to scrub Casa de Quixote but not Centre de Dia Reina Sofia?

    it's Dan J :stuck_out_tongue:

    Only I know Dan's true, SECRET IDENTITY for sure.

  • Mario_Levesque (disco)

    When i see that, i can't help myself to think that Consuela is behind all this...#nonono

  • JBert (disco) in reply to tsfroggy

    If a TDWTF submitter sends in multiple stories, I can agree that they reuse the "cover story" to save some work.

    At least this time there was no story where the protagonist goes on a hopeless quest for documentation.

  • duraz0rz (disco)

    This looks like a lot of crap I have to deal with...I feel Sergio's pain :(

  • golddog (disco)

    5 getNombre() apparently returns a string.

    Does that mean that Consuela is the President's daughter?
  • narbat (disco) in reply to delfinom

    It's not just you. My Java is limited to "hello, world"; my Spanish is limited to "tequila", "cerveza", and "mi amigo está pagando"; and the payoff isn't worth the effort.

  • chubertdev (disco)

    XML and Java, what could go wrong?

  • johnatwork (disco)

    "Calendar calendar = new GregorianCalendar();"

    Oh Java, you make me laugh.

  • blakeyrat (disco) in reply to johnatwork

    I'm intrigued by having to specify "Gregorian". What other options are there? Can I port my Mayan Long Count calendar class to Java?

    Didn't that get deprecated on 2012-12-21?

  • blakeyrat (disco) in reply to Onyx

    Well it's only used to measure dates between about 800 A.D. and 1450 A.D. so it doesn't really matter.

    If you're dealing with historical dates, the Julian calendar would be quite relevant. I don't think there's a standard Java implementation of it though. The signed 32-bit time_t model overlaps with a period when the Julian calendar was in use somewhere within the world; the Java basic time model covers an even longer period into the past…

    No, the Mayans just hung another Long Count on the wall.

    Perhaps you'd want to implement an Arabic lunisolar, Japanese Imperial, or Thai Buddhist calendar sometime?

    (OK, if you're trolling, you got me.)

    What type would you feel is more appropriate for a function named getName()?

    That was mistake numero uno.

    For certain purposes (notably a few Eastern Orthodox liturgical calendars) the Julian calendar is **still** in use.
