comment How to deal with Classes having the same name (different packages)
If it's occasional it probably does not matter - if it is a recurring pattern I would probably name the classes more precisely to prevent it from becoming a mess.

comment Using BSD licensed source code in a product under a new license and a hypothetical scenario
It is generally not recommended to cross post questions across sites. You could flag your question (flag link below question), select "in need of moderator intervention" and ask if your question can be migrated. The fact that is has a bounty may delay that migration... Or you could ask on meta what the right course of action is.

comment Do I need to use an interface when only one class will ever implement it?
@Jules It depends on your mocking framework - with jmockit for example, you can just write new Mockup<YourClass>() {} and the whole class, including its constructors, are mocked, whether it's an interface, abstract class or concrete class. You can also "override" the constructor behaviour if you wish to do so. I suppose there are equivalent ways in Mockito or Powermock.

@Jules You can mock a concrete class including its constructor in Java.

comment How to use Guice for an effective API Design?
You typically create the injector once, for example in your main, to setup the modules you want and then just use @Inject where you need...

comment Best way to handle blank dates
You should probably not use Optional<XX> as a field - it's really meant to be used as a return type from a method. So in this case I would have a private LocalDate dateOfBirth field that may be null - but getAge or getDateOfBirth could return an OptionalInt or Optional<LocalDate> respectively.

comment 2 methods that are 75% the same?
The if/else thingy is quite ugly. You should have two methods for the specific parts (the if/else blocks) and another method for the common part - that would be much cleaner IMO...
