I profiled my code and found out that my class, which implements `Comparable`, spends 8x more cpu time in
I assume that the slowdown is because of virtual table lookup for this method.
**Is there a way to force static invocation of the function?** (like in non virtual C++ methods)
I still want to use the `Comparable` interface since I use `TreeSet` with this object and I'd like not to rewrite this code.
EDIT: No, I didn't implement the compareTo(Object) - this was automatically generated and reported by the profiler And the two compareTo's are exactly the same other than casting?
