Jess Wiki: Common Beginner Mistakes

Common Beginner Mistakes

We all have to start somewhere, right?

Nobody learns without making mistakes -- your humble moderator especially! So, in honor of my many many Jess blunders, this page is dedicated to cataloging all the nasty things that happen to new students of Jess and how to fix them.

To make it fun and less embarrassing, here is a proposed classification scheme:

SevenDeadlySinsThings for which you will violate the ZenOfJess.
HeadSmackersWhen you see Ernest's answer, you smack your head. (Terribly obvious -- no excuse, but educational nonetheless)
HeadHangersThe "what was I thinking?" kind of mistake. (i.e., wrong concept)
ForestForTheTreesThe answer was right in front of you. (i.e, common typos)
ReadTheDocsThe documentation says it all. Give the link or URL.
CannotGetThereFromHereRelated to Head-Hangers (i.e., dead-end implementations)
