A Trip to Ja Ja Land

[ #7491 ]

I'm reading a fair amount of Java code these days. Not all of it is good. The last funny thing I saw was an application that 1) parsed XML itself, by hand, in 40 lines (needless to say, that flies just as well as regex based "XML parsers" in Perl) and 2) produced (complex) HTML by mean of dozens and dozens of fileWriter.write("some HTML").

No SAX, no templating, no XSLT... wow, a good thing that Perl is not good with web or XML stuff!
