hours, days, months making things work. When I moved to web-enterprise development, a lot of frameworks save me a lot of time, things like Hibernate, Seam, JMS, Guice.
But when I tried to go back to desktop applications, things hadn't changed very much, I still needed to do a lot of work. Then I started emulating some of the best features of Enterprise frameworks for desktop application development.
One common problem I've been facing to, it's related to this components:
- Factories: Delegate object creation and decouple components.
- Builders: Construct complex components from different parts.
- Singletos: Let's face it, in standalone applications are not that bad.
