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

comment Web Service REST clarification
Just some clarification regarding PUT vs. POST: PUT should be an idempotent operation, i.e. sending the same values again should not yield different results, but when inserting via PUT you are in fact inserting a new user every time. tools.ietf.org/html/rfc2616#section-9.1.2

comment How to add contributors to LICENSE file?
The code is hosted on Github and contains a license file. When they send a pull request, can I assume an implied-on-fact agreement?

@miraculixx Because not all people can update their systems to use the latest version of libraries. Debian stable and Mac OS X Fink still have the old versions in their repository.
