comment What is a login-queue?
The servers usually run in clusters and they provision new nodes when there is a long queue, since keeping users in queues is also not very good from usability perspective. In case of cloud based servers the provisioning is much simpler via APIs, in case of a self hosted data center the provisioning might involve physically booting up machines which are kept on standby. Similarly, when the overall load is less, active servers are de-provisioned.

comment Design Pattern Question
patterns are to help you write better and maintainable code - you dont have to force your program to follow a pattern if it does what it's supposed to be doing. In this case your program looks fine. You might want to go through the GoF Design Patterns book to learn about more maintainable patterns.

comment Are HSQLDB unit tests an anti pattern?
The idea is to test the functionality. If you can ensure the availability of a replica of your prod DB while running builds on your CI server, there is no harm running integration tests in place of unit tests.

comment Are HSQLDB unit tests an anti pattern?
+1 for the answer. I faced a similar issue where spring/hibernate code ran fine with HSQLDB in embedded mode during tests but failed badly in client-server MySQL. Agreed that the code was the fault and a well written code would have avoided the problem, but we expected the tests would fail if the code was not ok.

comment Tracking correct order details in commerce database when modifying 'products'
Yes, that would also be a good solution. In that case your services table could be immutable and all the changes to a service would be tracked in the service_descriptions table using a one-to-many relation. However each object population would need to look up two tables which would be slightly slow (but the difference is not much considering you are saving disk space)

comment How can a single database work for website, mobile apps?
Much of the logic can be taken care of in the DB level if OP goes for PostgreSQL - MySQL is not really designed for heavy DB level processing

You need to know CS.. not that you cannot know it by reading books. But you need to know theoretical CS.
