I'm a Java contractor working in the UK. My specialities are in the open source web application development frameworks:

  • Dropwizard, HAL, Spock
  • Spring, Hibernate, jQuery
  • JAX-RS, JAXB
  • and so on.

I'm always updating my skillset, and if you'd like to see what I'm currently working on in my spare time why not check out my personal blog.

comment Java labels. To be or not to be
The approach that @JoachimSauer has given is the correct way to implement this. The break is going to an earlier label which is not as readable as, for example, a return statement from a method.
