I think you mean maintainable code that is easy to extend.

You are right Jeanne, I mean maintainable code. I suppose the topic has become clearer Jesper. We will be happy if you share your experiment about tips for writing maintainable code.

Thank you.

The following article is a quite nice reading: How to write unmaintainable code
I know that it answers exactly the opposite question.
Else I suggest the book "Code Complete" from Steve McConnell which is worth it's weigth in gold.

Joachim Rohde, http://freeworld.thc.org/root/phun/unmaintain.html is a great article to understand both maintainable and unmaintainable code writing. Thank you so much for your sharing. It can help many of us, especially who have huge questions about Java Programing Language.
