comment Binary Search Tree without Natural Ordering
To the computer, a "natural" "obvious" or "reasonable" ordering is in no way different from an absurd, technocratic, arbitrary ordering. All that counts is that it's computable.

comment Set data in multi-level objects (may be using Java Reflection)
I want to use Reflection to keep it generic functionality for future flexibility. That is a very bad reason for using reflection. You will end up happier if you achieve that goal by other means.

comment Are new empty Java marker interfaces created to satisfy an existing method contract a code smell?
If A and B have no members in common at all, then what does the client code actually do to them? Does it use only Object methods? Then it should simply accept Object and not EitherAOrB.

comment Efficient saving of long strings with recurring substrings
You are reinventing compression. Don't try to write a clever space-saving routine - take advantage of one of the many, many space-saving routings that already exist. It doesn't matter whether you use a compressed file system, a zip archive or any other method.

comment Does anybody still use TODO for writing code later on?
Do you have a way of efficiently revisiting those places? If yes, then it's a workable solution. For instance, Eclipse automatically adds lines marked like this into its task list - it doesn't get any more automatic than that.
