One instance of using the Java API incorrectly is probably fine. Sure, there's lots of clever things you can do such as insert the same 2 items into a HashSet and get the same result every single time if you iterate over them and expect an order. (You're achieving the same state)

You can serialize a singleton, and deserialize it to get 2 copies.

I can also do 86400 seconds in a day, which is innacurate twice a year, but most of the time it's fine.

Sure, in perl I can do... new Foo instead of Foo->new.

Yeah, in the end it all may work out. In the IO case, java is validating the output as it's writing it and if someone does do Unicode->Latin1 because of that exact pattern, even if it works for this instance, you're teaching people a bad habit that can yield errors if they rubber stamp it all over the place.

You seem convinced to do this anyhow in your code. That's fine. Don't be surprised if other java devs don't look at it and go.. yeah, that looks wrong.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
