I just write the code they tell me to write ... or in this case I write the code that writes they code they want. Some are very disdainful of mutators but it really is a better solution than just making the data public. You could, for example, log whenever the value of the data is changed.

Any decent java editor (and most bad ones) will auto add getters/setters with about 2 button clicks. Seems kind of silly to write code in one language to write code in another. But I definitely understand the 'I write what they pay me to write' mentality.

I did not understand why the senior programmer wanted this code either ... I think he found out that there is an IDE that will do it for him, hence the script being junked. I posted it because I felt my glorious skills were being called into question Smile
