comment What Style is Better (Instance Variable vs. Return Value) in Java
Adding to the answer - if var1 is needed for a couple of methods but not part of the state of MyClass, it might be time to put var1 and those methods into another class to be used by MyClass.

comment Forcing Cache Refresh
I must be misunderstanding something, because it seems like adding a single method to your API client that the cache-aware apps can use would be easier than created two versions of lots of methods. Maybe you want to refresh as little as possible when needed?

Doesn't adding the extra parameter make the webapp aware of the storage mechanism?

comment Forcing Cache Refresh
Can you add the ability to refresh the cache to the API client library, so that your webapp can use it as needed? Or are you concerned that the storage mechanism should be unknown to the webapp?

comment REST autocomplete endpoint design
Idempotency in this context is a property of HTTP methods, meaning that the side-effects of N > 0 identical requests is the same as for a single request. Executing a GET request for a specific resource should always return the same resource without side-effects; the content of that resource may change, but it should be the same resource.

I hadn't thought of a sub-resource being a set of suggestions, but that's a good option.
