Description

Hi,

When extending a class that defines a method with the signature "public void load();", I get the following load time error:

java.lang.ClassFormatError: Duplicate method name&signature

Looking into javap, I see that in fact gen-class is generating two entries for the load method. Prefix does not help in this case, as the defined load method is generated anyway.

Cheers,

  • Daniel

Not a bug: I was declaring the method load, which was already defined on the abstract class. The docs do mention this:

Note that the name load is not special: it works with any abstract method, no matter the name.
