Incorrect method binding due to variable arity

Issue #142 resolved
Jesper Öqvist created an issue

ExtendJ 8.0.1-54-g387b459 Java SE 8

The most specific method computation fails for variable arity methods as in the test below:

// A variable arity method is more specific when passed an array type.
// .result=EXEC_PASS
public class Test {
  static boolean pass(Object p) {
    return false;
  static boolean pass(Object... p) {
    return true;
  public static void main(String[] args) {
      if (!pass(new String[0])) {
      throw new Error("Wrong method called.");

ExtendJ fails to compute the method binding for the call to pass(new String[0]). It should bind to the variable arity method, but instead gives this error:

    [junit] tests/method/varargs_01p/ error: several most specific methods for pass(new String[0])
    [junit]     pass(Object[]) in Test
    [junit]     pass(java.lang.Object) in Test
