-1 on the static create() method, what advantage does it provide over
just using the constructor?
For this use case I think I would prefer to create a Serializable
Address class rather than try to persist an address value as a
collection of weakly-typed values. In fact, I think we should be
providing a package that contains a bunch of commonly useful Attribute
value classes; address, phone number, SSN, e-mail etc. Then all we need
to do is this:
Collection<Address> values = new ArrayList<Address>();
Address addr = new Address();
Attribute addresses = new Attribute("addresses", values);
> Another thing we can review is the getEmail method on the User interface. Maybe we should support a String array to allow 1+ emails for users.
It is important to maintain a primary e-mail address for the user, for
additional e-mail addresses they can be stored as attributes.
