(define-simple-class ContentValues ()
((put s::java.lang.String d::java.lang.Double) ::void #!void)
((put s::java.lang.String l::java.lang.Long) ::void #!void)
((put s::java.lang.String f::java.lang.Float) ::void #!void))

(define (foo cv::ContentValues s::java.lang.String l::long)
(cv:put s l))


tmp/a2.scm:7:3: warning - more than one definitely applicable method `put' in ContentValues
candidate: void ContentValues.put(java.lang.String,java.lang.Float)
candidate: void ContentValues.put(java.lang.String,java.lang.Long)
candidate: void ContentValues.put(java.lang.String,java.lang.Double)

It should choose put(java.lang.String,java.lang.Long).
