Binary Search Method

Hi all,

I am trying to write a method: which does the following :
1. traverse the BST looking for a certain element of type T .
2. if found its value get changed with another one.
3. if not, even after completing all the traversal, we add the element to the place we stopped in :
So this is the code I have :


The basic question : is that am not very sure about the recursive call that comes under the second and the third if statments.

Does it really add the element in the specified location.

??

Can you think of a way to test this?
