it's simple.
If u know abt automatic conversion, char field can be assigned to int field (Widening case). so java converts char to int and called appropriate method.
Thanks

Because char is also an integral data type (which does not take -ive integers). When compiler tries to lookup a test method that takes a char, it doesn't find one so it looks for a closest (but eligible!) match, it finds the int version. So it promotes the char to int and calls that method!
HTH,
Paul.
