comment Should we avoid object creation in Java?
The newer Java versions from Oracle can do escape analysis, which means that objects that don't escape a method are allocated on the stack, which makes cleaning them up free - they are automatically deallocated when the method returns.

comment Should we avoid object creation in Java?
The newer versions of Java can do escape analysis, which means that it can allocate memory for objects that don't escape a method on the stack, so that cleaning them up is free - the garbage collector doesn't have to deal with those objects, they're automatically discarded when the method's stack frame is unwound (when the method returns).

comment Using BSD Licensed source code
How about asking the original author of the code if it's OK with him/her if you use the code in the way you intend to?

comment “// …” comments at end of code block after } - good or bad?
This really does not have anything to do with Java or Java programmers, and it's not common or a de-facto standard thing to do when programming in Java.

comment Difference between Javabean and Java Beans
One is singular and the other is plural? Really, without any more context this question is not answerable.

comment How do I keep an eye on a remote freelancer?
I'm a freelancer. I would NEVER accept a job from someone who requires me to install software to make a screenshot every few minutes. Besides, how would this help? Programming is not just typing in source code!

comment A Class named Class?
That would be a bad name, unless the entity represents the physical room where the class is to be held.

comment Is musical notation Turing-Complete?
It sort-of has conditional jumps, used in combination with repeat signs: "on the first repeat, play this part, on the second repeat, play that part". The repeat counter (that you'd hold in your head while playing) is state. But it indeed doesn't have an infinite tape containing state.
