does implicit narrowing occurs during calling a method giving argument type which is wider than the type of parameters in the definition of method ??


// method call
long a=5,b=6;

// method def.
void add(int a, intb)

5.3 Method Invocation Conversion

Method invocation conversions specifically do not include the implicit narrowing of integer constants which is part of assignment conversion (�5.2). The designers of the Java programming language felt that including these implicit narrowing conversions would add additional complexity to the overloaded method matching resolution process (�15.12.2).
