comment Rest APIs - mobile specific challenges
It sounds like your question might be, "How can an API deliver collections of objects and embedded objects of like or unlike types while retaining the REST style?" Am I understanding your question?

comment Composite Primary Key drawbacks
Whether you also have a unique number or not, and it may be desirable, the question implies you have a constraint based on five columns and you want the database to enforce it.

comment Composite Primary Key drawbacks
For mysql, you ought to say which storage engine for this question if you want performance related responses. Mysql depends on storage engine for statistics and index navigation capabilities. Storage engines are not equal in these areas. I worked on a storage engine last year, quite revealing. Also, might help to say if the key column values change during the life of a row, and how big they are, data types. This would give people more insight to answer.

comment Events in WCF Service Architecture (Server Side)
Trying to get clear on the question. WCF will instantiate objects when needed to handle incoming requests. Your services are simple objects, can be instantiated when handling a WCF request / inbound message. Where's the problem, or the need for more framework? Probably just not understanding the question.

comment Differences in design/thought process for OO in Java and JavaScript
@gnat That's a great answer to that question. I think the difference in this question is the focus on what problems one might run into from a beginner's perspective. If you read gnat's reference answer and have time to follow the references it will get you a great perspective on what you could be missing in js.

comment Cloud differential backup
Seems like you have two basic choices....1. Store enough local information to calculate differences (whole file or rsync approach) 2. Collect the differences as the changes are made. (slowing performance in most cases). You presumably already have a full copy of the file(s) at some base point in time in your cloud environment.

comment Why many designs ignore normalization in RDBMS?
@Yosi In #3, sometimes a normalized design results in performance hot spots for a particular important workload. Sometimes users (e.g. IT) find a large normalized design difficult to understand and query. In the latter case 'denormalized' views can often help. Two examples.

comment Why many designs ignore normalization in RDBMS?
@JimmyShelter I agree. Fashion aside, relational is not always the best choice.
