comment How to handle sorting of complex objects?
I prefer the comparator variant: a car has no natural order and you should provide a comparator as one of the sorting strategies. Also, why play with Treeset if you only want to sort your collection?

comment How to handle sorting of complex objects?
I looks to be the better solution: hard to do less than add the field on the considered class and express "somewhere" how to deal with all the fields used in the comparison.

comment What's a good length for Javadoc for a class that is say 800 lines long?
I would add a small sentence for saying if the class can be safely used in a concurrent environment. It is probably part of State Information.

comment Am I sending large amounts of data sensibly?
If there is only one writing during the file's creation, and if you don't look at unfinished files (thanks to a message mechanism, for instance), no locking mechanism is needed.

comment Why don't research papers that mention custom software release the source code?
@Paul I don't see the connection with the source code publication. Anyway, good editors pay attention to the notes the reviewers write to justify their decisions. Therefore mentions like "It's bullshit" are not taken into account. If the editor estimates the reviewers' recommandations are not relevant enough, he asks for the opinion of an other expert. The grad students don't take part in the review process. And if you cannot let your paper accepted after some years of submission, you should envisage this paper (or its content) is not so good.
