comment Replacing dao layer
Why impractical? Ideal in our situation where we want to use different driver classes in different environments - say ActiveMQ in dev and MQ in production.

comment When comparing a combination of String literals, is it convention to call .equals() on the literal?
@sparkleshy - Disagree, you really dont want string literals sprinkled through your code logic. As mentioned in original answer, if the string literal is used in more place than one then I'd definetly say to refactor them out.

comment Is it good practice to comment with issue number?
I think you should do both, but I don't think its enough on it's own to add these comments into source code control. You rarely even see those comments unless you go looking for them. Having these references much more visible can be useful IMO.
