Q: Good IO library design

nablexA while ago I designed an IO library that tries to bridge the gap between sync & async I/O. The initial impetus was that I wanted to design some utilities that could work both with async and sync I/O and any type of content (bytes, chars,...). However the nio design of Buffer/Channel falls a bit...

Q: Logging using function as decorator in Guava

KoziołekI needed to add a logger into my flow based on FluentIterable from the Guava library. I have a lot of functions and in some cases I would like to add logging when in other cases (for the same function) I would not. Of course the natural solution for this problem is to use the decorator pattern,...

@JeroenVannevel Each rule has to be figured out inside this same method, and they do it in order, so for each rule there is accessing a different part of an XML file to see if certain information exists, so when one of these goes to set a rule to true, I just return instead. eventually I will turn each one into a method that is called from this method. like I said it's ugly spaghetti

Q: Reviewing "design"

Simon André ForsbergIt has been said in various comments that on Code Review we review code and not design. I find this statement not very clear though.

Simon André ForsbergI was wondering if, as part of asking for a review here, can I ask about how useful my code is?

A: Logging using function as decorator in Guava

rolflThe concept seems fine to me. The problem is that you will still need to decide whether to decorate, or not decorate the function, and that is done outside the function. That makes it a once-per-create decision, which is OK, but you may still end up with a lot of conditions in your code: Functio...

no multi catch, no nice and sweet diamond operator

Unsafe code is less secure than safe alternatives.
@rolfl I'm struggling to read that. That is saying "An insecure thing is insecure", right?

It can lead to buffer overflows.
This is a security leak.
Safe alternatives are more secure than unsafe code.
It kinda makes sense like that.

what are they for?
@JeroenVannevel Well, I am just having a hard time understanding how / when to use ModelBinding vs a MediaTypeFilter. I am trying to accomplish something that was very useful in MVC, but seems to be difficult to set up in WebApi.
The others are different ways to accomplish similar things between the two technologies.

7:08 PM
There are so many options for doing server-side stuff though, I was going to go for PHP since it is so common and there are tons and tons of resources. It's just a bit ... ugly.
@Phrancis The abundance of resources does not mean it's good! There are other options that could be fun to do for back end. But back end for you is like REST Api or deliver static page or something with a templating engine ?
I have no idea what that means lol.
I think at first we would deliver static page since it's simpler
REST API will "serve" you data like json, that will be then use in a web app (like a JS app)
Static page is where your back end will send you html pages
ASP.NET is pretty fun. All the cool kids use it
and template engine will add a bit more "dynamic" things in it! (Staitic and template are the "same" thing)
7:15 PM
My thought was basically this:
- User supplies values via HTML form;
- POST values get passed to a DB connector;
- DB executes a function and passes it back to the connector;
- Data is displayed
you're missing step 1.5
HTML doesn't talk to database
@Phrancis It will not exactly be like that
that's where you insert your serverside code
- Frontend: user requests page
- Backend: controller returns page
- Frontend: user inputs data in form and sends it
- Backend: controller receives data
- Backend: controller talks to database
- Backend: controller returns page
Well yeah that's kind of what I meant by DB connector, perhaps the wrong vernacular!
I'm not too sure why that connector is so important in your scenario though - often you'll actually use the database for very little. You'll use an ORM tool like Entity-Framework or Hibernate to translate method calls to db queries

Also, there's Python.

Q: Basic singlepage blog application

user2520781I've started learning Mithril framework, it looks pretty awesome; I've created a basic blog app and have a few questions about code style and structure... please, review this code: var app = {}; app.PostList = function(list) { return m.prop(list || []); }; app.vm = {}; app.Post = function(d...

@KonradViltersten With the current implementation of Dictionary, I belive that requires removing items from the dictionary. But saying "I don't remove anything, so I should be fine" is relying on undocumented implementation details, and you shouldn't do that. — svick yesterday

Q: Parser for programming language

KyranstarI'm writing a basic LL(1) parser in java, but my parser class is quickly getting out of hand and becoming huge. PMD even calls it a "God class" and says that it has "Too many methods." Is there a way that I can refactor this class? public class Parser { private static final APValueNum NEGATI...

Q: Django ListView with MySQL query for the queryset

ZAD-Man(Note: Even if you don't know Django, it's probably the query that needs work anyway, so you probably don't need to know Django/Python) I have a ListView that displays all the entries in a mapping table between the pizza table and the topping table. Unfortunately, I can't just use Django's helpf...

@RubberDuck I prefer @Malachi++ for readability.. unless the pre-increment is required ;)
Always nice to see it laid out exactly what is generated
Although I don't like his async void signature
My teacher does the same; it irks me

@JeroenVannevel isn't async void meant only for events?
@mjolka yep. But it's not necessarily needed from the top calling method
so some people don't do it
which is grounds for execution, really
tough, but fair

@SimonAndréForsberg Guess what day it is!
45 minutes to yearling @rolfl?
If your code works and you want to get a review on it, head over to codereview.stackexchange.com where we'll gladly do that for you. Stack Overflow is meant for problems with code. — Jeroen Vannevel 27 mins ago
@JeroenVannevel: Was I wrong about the closure on CR? It just sounds like the OP was asking for some clarification, not a review for improvement.
@Jamal To me it reads as if his code works but that he didn't quite knew whether he used methods correctly
I think it's a good call. Code works, OP wants to learn. Where better than CR?
I was either going to redirect him to a tutorial or to CR
Figured it could be okay here

Hence why I closed as unclear, not off-topic.

@Mat'sMug Something like that, yes ;-)

@rolfl Well.. I am younger, so logic tells me that one day they'll pass out and I'll be able to overtake.
Can't wait for the day
as far as I know, there are still people on that winning streak... but, it's a bit of a cheat, because they were members before the system was started to count these things.
Although I'll have to find a way to make things work during my Argentina trip next summer
So, they may have broken records from before that.
@rolfl I think my upvote just got him a [badge:guru]

That's what friends are for ;-)
@Mat'sMug Go on, comment there (if you don't, I will... ;-)
I'm not sure if I can trust them with something as delicate as this
There's always the Dori option you know.
@rolfl go ahead ;)
I believe this makes you a guru.... ;-) Is the streak still happening? — rolfl 1 min ago

Q: Finding a sum of unique triplet that is close to a given number in an array

chmod766I asked one question on code review yesterday about my code style, logic and readability of code. Hence, today I kept all those suggestions in mind while solving a new problem question. The question is such: Given an array S of n integers, find three integers in S such that the sum is closest to...

ugh. I need a better title.. "TestExplorer UI" is just... why am I better for coming with good titles for other people's posts?

Q: TestExplorer UI

Mat's MugFollowing up on Integrating Unit Testing functionality into an old COM-based IDE, I made quite a few changes to the UI, and now the code-behind for my TestExplorerWindow is starting to feel somewhat bloated, at least compared to what it was... I blame the added toolbar and the fancypants progress...

Q: Node js single mongodb connection

user3425765I want my entire node application to use one single mongodb connection, at least that's what I think is better. I wrote this little script and want some feedback on it. Especially if what I'm doing makes sense. This is my mongodb.js file 'use strict'; // Mongodb module. var MongoClient = r...
