    Method Overloading... Is it possible?

    shadowc0de Newbie

      Given the following class:

      public class EventManager
      {
      public void postEvent(Event event)
      {
      ...
      }
      }

      Is it possible to use Javassist to add overloaded methods on the fly and have them called correctly?

      public void postEvent(MyEvent event)
      {
      ...
      }

      I can get Javassist to add the method to the class but when I execute the following code, postEvent(Event event) is always the method that is called.

      EventManager.postEvent(new MyEvent());

      If I don't use Javassist and just compile the source with the added methods with the jdk it works as expected. What am I missing?

      Thanks!!!
