10 Typical Problems in Enterprise Java Applications by Eberhard Wolff

Just had a look through some nice slides done by Eberhard Wolff (there is also a video in German, but I haven’t had the time to watch it yet). As Eberhard mentioned on his blog post, depending on the audience many people seem to be already aware of those typical problems. Then on the other hand I have seen sooo many projects and source code violating common sense and introducing exactly those common mistakes…

My personal opinion; especially the use of AOP and comprehensive testing should get more emphasize in businesses and education. Not sure if people will ever learn to write (Java) code that is capable of handling multi threading and transactions appropriately. But some of the other issues can defiantly be tackled by better education of software developers.

Anyways, a quite nice presentation, and even if you aware of most of these problems, getting them back to your brain might help during your next project. Thanks Eberhard!
