class Voop {
2. public static void main(String[] args) {
3. doStuff(1);
4. doStuff(1,2);
5. }
6. static void doStuff(int[] doArgs) { }
7. }

I think the statement 6 has no problem. What do you think?

The method declaration on line 6 has no problem.
Line 3 and 4 will not compile because the doStuff() method takes in an Array object, but in one method call you give it an int primitive, and the other method call you give it 2 int primitives.

What keeps you from compiling it to find out straight away if there are any problems?

Excellent! It is 100% correct. line 3 and 4 will not compile because of base function is using array not fixed params.

Change [] (int the method) into ...
And everything will be all right

As Ulf said, why did you not try and compile it yourself? Don't get me wrong I am delighted when people ask questions (it's why I visit), but I find it an odd question "will this code compile". If you are not constantly attempting to compile code yourself you are missing out on one of the finest learning tools.

This code will not compile :-



public class Test {


public static void main(String[] args) {

doStuff(1);
doStuff(1,2);
}
static void doStuff(int[] doArgs) { }

}


the above code will not compile and will ask for method declaration using netbeans
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
