public static void checkThis(Double d1, Double ... d2) {
System.out.println("Double and Var-Args");
}
public static void checkThis(Double d1, Double d2, Double ... d3) {
System.out.println("Double , Double and Var-args");
}
public static void checkThis(double d1, Double d2, Double ... d3) {
System.out.println("double , Double and Var-args");

Hi,

For the method call, the compiler would find a match in all the three forms of checkThis() and this ambiguity causes the compiler error.

Thanks
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
