Third time's the charm  
I've been harrassing my project manager (I guess that's his role now) to actually post a copy of the functional spec for our current Formulary project. For the third time in two weeks, he promised to post them "today".

Of course, I've already written and sent around a few drafts of the technical specs based on my guesses and his rough draft, and we started this project Monday.

Wouldn't it be fun to veto specs with the excuse "It's already done, and that's not how we did it."?

Ah well. This leaves me more time for my hobby at work - ripping out the Brilliantly Wrong code in our system created by the original contractors, and replacing it with Something Better. There's still a few places in here where they use Java Serializations of DOM Objects (encapsulating simple key-value pairs in XML) as parameters sent across RMI to other classes running in the same JVM. If you didn't follow that last sentance - it's bad.

Is that COM or DOM?

DOM. Document Object Model. The slowest, most memory-intensive possible way to represent XML data - as a heirarchy of Objects.

Ahh. The key value pairs through me there. I have only used the HTML DOM. Out of curiousity, which Java application server are you running?

This code was originally written for WebLogic, but I transitioned it to JBoss.

That's _disgusting_.
