comment Expected behavior when an request for a collection will have zero items
Very reasonable explanation. The result returned should not cover for invalid state, we have exceptions for this.

comment Does a create() method exist as part of a pattern?
Actually, the naming is more a choice to me rather than part of the pattern. For instance, with spring (my second example), you have the ability to tell Spring which your init method is, so you can say <bean class="foo" init-method="create" /> This will invoke the create method of your foo class before it returns a foo instance to where it was requested. You can specify anything other than create as long as it is a valid method. If you need to establish the usage of create method, you can use an interface.

comment Why is the use of JavaScript in HREF attributes discouraged?
@GrandmasterB, I would not take into account any source that recommends one thing over another without showing a brief pros/cons comparison of the alternatives (but that's me). I think that the OP might have been told so by people he works with, or supervise him in any way (and thus can hardly be quoted like a persistent written resource). It might be that non of them gave reasonable explanations, he seeks answers here, which is not necessarily ranting, or a bad thing in general.

comment Can I use a part of another program without having to give away my rights on my own code?
@CharlesE.Grant, indeed, this is something that I am missing and definitely something to watch for in case the distribution itself is a reason to affect your own license scheme.
