ESB.NET. Classic Mistakes Enumerated. Some ineffective development practices have been chosen so often, by so many people, with such predictable, bad results that they deserve to be called "classic mistakes.

Classic Mistakes Enumerated

" Most of the mistakes have a seductive appeal. Do you need to rescue a project that's behind schedule? Add more people! Do you want to reduce your schedule? Schedule more aggressively! Developers, managers, and customers usually have good reasons for making the decisions they do, and the seductive appeal of the classic mistakes is part of the reason these mistakes have been made so often.

This section enumerates three dozen classic mistakes. The common denominator in this list is that you won't necessarily get rapid development if you avoid the mistake, but you will definitely get slow development if you don't avoid it. If some of these mistakes sound familiar, take heart. Some of the more significant mistakes are discussed in their own sections in other parts of this book.

The Enterprise Architect User Guide provides tutorials, guidance and reference material to help you use Enterprise Architect in: See the Overview for further details of what Enterprise Architect can do and what you can use it for. Enterprise Architect makes extensive use of UML, so we describe the Enterprise Architect representations of UML diagrams, elements and connectors. Enterprise Architect also includes a Technology Developer's interface (Automation and Scripts) that enables you to extend and customize the tool. To Use This Guide If you are new to modeling and UML as well as Enterprise Architect, or otherwise want a rapid review of the process of modeling with Enterprise Architect, go to the Quickstart Tutorial.

I still get a lot of questions on how to design exception hierarchies, despite several attempts to describe it in talks, the FDG book, and in posts on this blog.

How to Design Exception Hierarchies - Krzysztof Cwalina

Maybe the guidance gets lots in the in the complexities of the full guidance surrounding exception handling or I am a bad communicator. Let me assume the former :-), and so here is one more attempt at describing the guidance in the most succinct way I am capable of: · For each error condition you reusable routine can get into, decide whether the condition is a usage error or a system error. o A usage error is something that can be avoided by changing the code that calls your routine. For example, if a routine gets into an error state when a null is passed as one of its arguments (error condition usually represented by an ArgumentNullException), the calling code can modified by the developer to ensure that null is never passed. . · Usage errors need to be communicated to the human developer calling the routine.
