comment When is method overloading appropriate?
Thanks for the answer. I did ask someone more senior, but since the code is in a somewhat interesting state their solution was one I wasn't sure about, but nevertheless implemented (it was not the overloading).

If I understand your answer correctly, I should be overloading only when looking at the parameters will allow me to infer the differences in behaviour between, say, sum(String, String) and sum(int, int)?

@MartijnVerburg I haven't, at this stage. Since I'm only an intern, I'm still a little unfamiliar with things like design patterns and I don't have good design practice habits yet. In answer to your second question, it is a representation of an actual domain object. magicStringMethod() in my example would, in my case, get a String representation of SomeOtherObject which was a domain object.

Oh, you were Zaphod! I was kinda wishing it were possible to nominate users since I remembered you being very active in helping to moderate discussions. It's lucky I didn't spend half-an-hour trying to figure out where the elusive Zaphod Beeblebrox went, then. =\ You have my sword - wait, wrong site - support! (not sure that means much haha ^^)
