Can someone comment this code for me and tell me what its doing?
private Tree cast(TEServiceStub.Tree tree) {
            if(tree.getChildren() != null && tree.getChildren().getTrees().length > 0) {
                  List<Tree> children = new ArrayList<Tree>();
                  for(TEServiceStub.Tree oneTree : tree.getChildren().getTrees()) {
                        children.add(cast(oneTree));
                  }
                  Node node = cast(tree.getNode());
                  return new Tree(children, node);
            } else {
                  return new Tree(cast(tree.getNode()));
            }
      }

      private Node cast(TEServiceStub.Node node) {
            if(node == null) {
                  return null;
            }
            Node result = new Node();
            result.setAttributes(cast(node.getAttributes()));
            result.setNodeId(node.getId());
            return result;
      }

Those two methods do a deep type casting of TEServiceStub.Tree objects to Tree objects and from TEServiceStub.Node objects to Node.
