If you're going to keep outsourcing your responses, I'm just going to ignore them.

Essentially, that's what you're doing anyway, isn't it?

You're nothing more than a Legacy App Maintainer (just as spirit said). The rest of us will be working on cutting edge next generation applications.

The rest of us (who've been around awhile) also know that today's "cutting edge next generation applications" are just tomorrow's legacy apps.

Yeah, after 5-10 years usually. By then, we'll be working on even more advanced stuff.

Does it mean you never look back and think, "Oh God what a mess I left behind"?

If you didn't need to re-code all the business logic you could probably replace it sooner

Yeah it will be a mess for the poor DBA's because they don't know how to deal with intelligent design or proper application architecture.

I thought I already proved this unintelligent myth that DBA's seemed to have. Are you telling me that at the end of the application life, we re-create a new application from scratch which means introducing potential past bugs????? You do know part of the reason of an object-oriented approach is to re-use code right?

Maybe you should re-read page #1 or maybe you have no project or application experience and should stop posting nonsense.

Can't you see by know we like you?
We are just yanking your chains. You just need to downsize your attitude.

It is fine to discuss this topic, however I am not fine with the insults. I am locking this topic.

@whitefang:
don't get to hung up on object oriented stuff... it might go away soon

i never said blindman or anyone was a legacy app maintainer. please don't put words in my mouth.
probably all of us in some way maintain some legacy apps including you.

it seems that you like to assume way to much from the people answers.
there is no one true way in software. hopefuly your years of experience taught you that.

as for the use of new cutting edge technology. it's a double-edged sword.
we use quite a lot of current cutting edge but sometimes it pays to skip a tech or too
