Let's take an example:
           if(lab.getDescription() != null && lab.getDescription().length() > 0) {
                  TEServiceStub.Attribute attr = new TEServiceStub.Attribute();
                  attr.setName("DESCRIPTION");
                  attr.setValue(lab.getDescription());
                  attrs.add(attr);
            }
It says that if the description of lab is not empty, this description is stored in a list of attributes (attrs) that will be later sent with the request
