    Polymorphism & local interfaces

    dcrot Newbie

      Hi,

      for the code snippet below assume that 'c' is a reference to a local interface.


      someMethod(Integer pk) {
      Customer c = custHome.findByPrimaryKey(pk);
      Object o = c;
      otherMethod(o);
      }

      otherMethod(Object o) {
      System.out.println("object");
      }

      otherMethod(Customer c) {
      System.out.println("customer");
      }


      The output from the above is "object" using Jboss 3.0.3? So, can anyone answer why the otherMethod(Customer c) method isnt being called instead?


      thanks in advance,

      Dean
