Refactoring

So I'm working on a project at work where I'm porting some more C++ code to Java. I looked at the original code and said, "Well, let's see if we can streamline that." And I wrote a set of classes to support the behaviors that I wanted and which would generate the XML that I needed that C++ had been handling by writing exquisitely hand-crafted XML.

And I looked at the classes and said, "That could be simpler." And so I refactored the class structure I had written.

And I looked at the classes and said, "That could really be simpler." And I refactored the class structure into a set of Java enums.

It's a lot simpler now. :)

    Gretchen and I went to the doctor for a fasting blood draw this morning. We'll see how the results are. This afternoon, Gretchen went *back* in that…

    Today is better than yesterday. Still short on solutions, but maybe I can get some time to sort things out. Thanks, folks.

  • Well, That Escalated Quickly

    Today could have been better. Much better.
