I Have Reinforcements
As Joshua Kerievsky says in his book Refactoring to Patterns, so many developers have an obsession with using language primitives such as strings, integers, or enumerations. Whether thatís because they think that itís too much work to make a class, or itíll take too many CPU cycles, or itíll eat up too much memory, it doesnít matter. The obsession with primitives is unhealthy and it leads to spaghetti code that is hard to refactor.
Objects are good...=) Trust me.
