I have recently asked a few Java-related questions on Stack Overflow that were practically self-answered by me. It's not that I'm disappointed that no one has answered - these were hard questions. But they also have gained almost no acknowledgment - very few views, no votes, etc.
In the same time many trivial and easy questions are answered very quickly gaining both up and downvotes or being closed - it's not important - what is important, they were at least clicked. Everything that is documented gained attention - both repo-hunt answers and RTFM-like close votes.
One of this questions, PrimeFaces with big dialogs - how to do this correct?, got six visits before end of the day, when I've finally worked out jQuery hack - probably two or three of them are my self visits that were counted. Such use of dialogs is something beyond documentation and showcase.
How to use Spring services in JSF-managed beans? is about the cooperation between two most important Java technologies, Spring and JSF. 26 views in almost one month? Is this so little interesting to Java developers? Are they happy with EJB+EJB, because it is described in documentation and showcases, and more need they not?
So, is the community more and more focused on hacks and tricks, and not to the solution to hard problems?
