comment Architecture to handle service concurrency on resources exposed via REST API
As you mention bulk updates: Should these happen in one atomic operation, or should each entity be considered a seperate update?

comment Why is build.number an “abuse” of semantic versioning?
@gbjbaanb et al.: In every discussion about "semantic versioning" that I was part of, the definition from semver.org was the subject. Search the web for "semantic versioning", and at least the first page comes up with pros/cons about the definition from semver.org. You are free to use your own versioning schemes, but do not call it semantic versioning, as this term is clearly defined.

comment Is “continue” and “break” in loops antipattern/bad practice in Java?
+1: The main difference between continue and goto: With continue you know, where you jump to (the beginning of the loop), but with goto your destination may be anywhere.

comment Web Service REST clarification
@MikePartridge In many cases, you won't set the entity ID from the client side, but on the server side, e.g. an auto-increment column in a database or something similar. There, you need a POST request to generate the ID. But that does not hold for all RESTful API, because other problems may arise: PUT requests for CouchDB are not idempotent, others may have similar solutions for concurrency. wiki.apache.org/couchdb/HTTP_Document_API#PUT
