jstatic

Arguments: method class &rest args

This function calls a static Java method with the given arguments.

If the first (method) argument is a string or symbol, it names a method and the second (class) argument must be a class name or a class reference. We look for a method with the number of arguments given. If a unique method can be selected, then that method is called. Otherwise a continuable error is signaled to allow an appropriate method to be selected.

If the method argument is neither a string nor a symbol, it is assumed to be a method reference. The class argument is ignored, and the method is called with the remaining arguments.

The compiler macro associated with the function allows compile-time collection of java class names and method signatures. This information is used to generate a file of class and method definitions that may be loaded to initialize an application, and avoid the class and method lookup overhead in the body of the application (see jlookup).

See jlinker.htm for more information on the jLinker facility.
