When Methods just are not enought.

  • <FONT face="Courier New" size=2>package quickUtil;
    import java.io.File;


    public class mkFolder {
        public mkFolder(String folder)
            File tmp = new File(folder);
            if (!tmp.exists())
        //    ---------------------------------------------------


    and ~5 other "quick utils". Ones that return a value look like:

    <FONT face="Courier New" size=2>class Test {
       String returnValue;
       Test( params ) { /* work */ }
       String getReturn() { return returnValue; }

    Yes, the code is littered with

    <FONT face="Courier New" size=2>new mkFolder( "blah" );

    Test t = new Test( .... );
    String v = t.getReturn();</FONT>

    <FONT face="Courier New" size=2>(ED: Fixed formatting)</FONT>

  • @mlk said:

    <font face="Courier New" size="2">
       Test( params ) { /* work */ }</font>

    I like this.

    Ensuring proper operation purely by willing it.

    I could not be bothered to post all of it. It hurts to much.

  • <font size="2">"'static'?  What's that?"

    I've just starting looking over a different project by the same group.
    I'm sure two different developers are involved (uses static methods).
    However it adds c:\program files to the path. Then runs java
    companyname.appname.Main. The wrongness, it burns.
