I don't have much to say about the rest of your post, but it strikes me odd that you took this as an opportunity to rail against Java. The only reason he even brought it up was to further explain his point. I see nothing in the OP talking about the relative merits or problems with that language. Curious you devoted a whole paragraph to unnecessarily pointing out its flaws.

    I actually spent the past 5 years doing some horrible Java tricks, including the whole webserver idea. I believe I know enough Java to judge it... I don't know PHP very well... I usually don't spend longer than 30 minutes looking at PHP code. I see some differences with perl and things that might be considered bad but I know too little about it to make an unbiased judgement. I hear some nice things about it, I hear some bad things about it. At the moment, with the very little I know about PHP, I'd still go for PHP in a PHP vs Java match. You can call me script addict any time soon now.

    Oh, BTW.. I'm not judging Python since I don't know it... but I CAN give you an overview of Things that suck about(TM) COBOL

    Yes, so I misspelled Python (thanks dws) but it was late :)

    ... I'm belgian but I don't play one on TV.

[choroba]: The problem was bigger, as the test tried to call a method that didn't exist anymore
[marinersk]: :: ducking ::
[choroba]: because, someone renamed the method, but didn't notice it was used in the test, as the test was skipped
[marinersk]: Well, if the method doesn't exist, it would be hard to pass the test.
[choroba]: later, someone removed the new method, as all its usage places were safe, but didn't notice the test still used the old name
[choroba]: fortunately, it wasn't that hard to replace the method and fix a few remaining failures due to the changes we did to the codebase over the years
[marinersk]: choroba Sounds like a process improvement opportunity; tests may not all need to be run, but they should all be compiled with perl -c before check-in/promotion happens.
[choroba]: so, now I have the test, so I can start making changes in the code. Back to the original ticket, yay!
[marinersk]: I definitely love it when my $current_taask=& taskPop(); if ($current_task eq $original_task) { } is true.
[marinersk]: s/taask/task/g;
