assuming 2 methods (Object... args) and (String a, Object... args)

a call('str') won't match (String a, Object... args) but simply uses the generic one

... not sure if it's a good idea to fix these on JRuby 1.7.x (assuming not due compatibility) ?

I'd guess that call('str'.to_java) invokes the right one, but I agree we could do a better job when we know we're turning an argument into a java.lang.String or other basic type.

it's not an issue with type matching (call('str'.to_java) does not invoke the right one) but of a varargs processing as it's only considered a suitable match for arities where the var-arg parameter receives an arg...

… receives no arg

`method(String, Object...)` will now be considered with a `method('foo')` call

fixes jruby#3279
