  1. 9/6/2006 - (From Jon + Thomas) When checking for equality between a dynamic object and a static one, make the .equals call on the static object, for example:

    if (! "".equals(someRandomString))

    The advantage of this is that it never throws a NullPointerException, even if someRandomString is null.
