comment Does sending system-profile information with HTTP GET request conform to RESTful practices?
Looks like it's URL parameters.

comment Does sending system-profile information with HTTP GET request conform to RESTful practices?
In what way does Sparkle include system-profile info with the GET request? E.g. as a request body, as a URL parameter, etc?

REF 7321 appears to be Cryptographic Algorithm Implementation Requirements and Usage Guidance for Encapsulating Security Payload (ESP) and Authentication Header (AH) - is that the RFC you're referring to?

In that case, a more accurate word might be "verbose".

comment Laravel 5 Multi-App
This question centers on a specific version of a specific framework, so you might get more attention on a forum specific to that framework.

comment Working with two different database types for one application
I can attest that this can be accomplished using Hibernate. To switch data sources, switch your Hibernate data source configuration. Using JPA w/ Hibernate works the same way.

comment Calling Web API vs adding reference to underlying dlls
I disagree, but naming the design is irrelevant to the question, so I'll just say that I agree with the heart of your answer and leave it at that.

comment Calling Web API vs adding reference to underlying dlls
They certainly are, but simply using web service calls to access some functionality doesn't mean that the OP is using a distributed objects architecture.

comment Calling Web API vs adding reference to underlying dlls
Good answer from a theoretical standpoint, but it might be overkill. An HTTP request is always going to be slower than calling into a DLL, so until you need to support both, I'd stick to the clear winner.

comment Calling Web API vs adding reference to underlying dlls
This question doesn't describe distributed objects in the way that Fowler describes in Pattern of Enterprise Application Architecture, but I agree with the heart of your answer: making HTTP calls is going to be orders of magnitude slower than calls into a DLL.

comment Is throwing an exception an anti-pattern here?
At least with Guava's Optional, trying to put a null in results in an exception. You'd have to use Optional.absent().
