comment Should I always store parsed data in database before manipulating?
Storing the files before you process them isn't a bad idea, but why a database? Simpler to just dump them in a directory, if that's good enough.

comment Is it an overkill to write unit tests for a small code base?
It's not the size of the code-base, but the complexity of the various flows through the code.

comment Would combining enums with static strings in java be sloppy?
Yes, that feels wrong to me as well. Pick one option or the other (I agree with you, as I usually prefer enums), but maintaining both is just more work and a potential source of errors and bugs in the future.

comment Is there a difference between SQL INSERT patterns
The only difference I can see is that the first one is clearer and easier to understand. Why do a SELECT in an INSERT if you're not doing a SELECT INTO?

comment Matching algorithms in context of data quality problems
@w0051977: String dates could be difficult. You'll have to decide how you want to handle strings like 01/02/1980 vs. 02/01/1980: Is it Feb. 01 1980 or Jan. 02 1980?

How is date of birth stored? As an actual DATE object, or as a free-form string?
