For Sale: Abstract Base Classes
Why is it that you can't buy abstract base classes? Sure you can buy all the concrete classes you would like... Date, Time etc etc., But when it comes to being able to buy an Employee class... well good luck. You might find an end product such as an Employee Tracker or Employee Payroll, but they don't help in building your system.
Genius is 1% inspiration...
For all these abstract base classes you''d have to define some mapping to a physical store somewhere, some kind of database fields mapping. If you do that you might as well define the presentation class and some common methods at the same time.
Yeah, it sounds silly...
Isn't this what the DOM is for XML, of course its free rather than commercial.
"It's a 'Jump to Conclusions Mat'! You see, you have this mat, with different CONCLUSIONS written on it that you could jump to!"

Maybe they can sell them on iTunes for 99 cents.
>>>"It's a 'Jump to Conclusions Mat'! You see, you have this mat, with different CONCLUSIONS written on it that you could jump to!"
Yes, this is horrible, this idea.
Well, I think it would be more salable if only had two conclusions that could be jumped to: "My Boss Is Evil" and "My Boss Is Merely Incompetent".
What someone needs to do is to modify the "Dance Dance Revolution" game controller to be a Jump to Conclusions Mat.
