Function Overloading..?

Can any one help me understand why the output of the below always displays as

Double 1.0
Double 2.0

I tried to reorder the doSome functions, but always only the one with 'Double' parameter seems to execute.

Can anyone please let me know the logic behind this? Its driving me crazy..!

Can you show us the output as it appears? This outputs

Integer: 1
Double: 2.0

Vijitha is right. There is no way that the code can output Double both the times. Even if you try, you'll get a compilation error
