Just an ordinary Monday

Just another ordinary Monday. Get to work, and not there two hours and some litte thing misbehaves. Not a new thing, but something that rarely happens.
Needless to say, it is now very urgent to get it fixed.

No big deal, just another Monday. It is actually a nice diversion.

Too bad this will be one of those fix it quick versus reinvent sort of things. The whole process not just the one piece needs revisited. The whole process is just a bit too busy and carries too much work load for what its target function is.

The current process chunks over every document it is gathering for processing. This leads to a problem with excessively large documents in a limited resource environment. My fix is going to be to relocate the work into a process that just does that and out of band with a synchronous process. But toying with that concept makes it evident that several other pieces of the big process could use the same touch.

Anyway, one other thing is that the current process tree requires a rough level of testing and offers few opportunities to test individual pieces. Currently break points would be required and manual tests conducted.

Oh well, we'll just have to add that to the job jar.
