134: Get Effective Help with an SSCCE

In this episode, Donn talks about how you can get effective help with your coding problems with an SSCCE – a Simple, Self-Contained, Correct (Compilable), Example.

Using an SSCCE provides others with a quick, concise way to examine the problem without extraneous libraries, UI toolkits and various other parts of your application that do not matter to the problem at hand.

Donn breaks down each component of the SSCCE so you can wrap your head around what you need to get help quickly.

111: Effective Java v3 – Item #5 – Prefer Dependency Injection to Hardwiring Resources

In this mini-fragment episode, Donn talks about Item #5 of the Effective Java (Third Edition) book – Prefer Dependency Injection to Hardwiring Resources.

Please note, this episode references the third edition of the Effective Java book that recently came out. Previously we were doing the entire series on version 2, but we are now upgrading to version 3 of the book. We will not be re-doing any of the existing lessons, but if one was inserted in the mix, then we will do that lesson.

This is the case with Item #5. We did Item #5 previously for v2 of the book, but v3 introduced a new Item 5 (and bumped the previous Item 5 up to 6).

TLDR; Item #5 is new in the third edition of the Effective Java book. So listen closely. :)
