Default arguments, @JvmOverloads, and call function via reflection


#1

Hello, I would like to ask, how call (by reflection) function with default parameters from java:

If I have function like:

@JvmOverloads
fun fun1(par1: Int = 1, par2: Int = 2, par3: Int = 3) { // }

So this will generate:

fun1()
fun1(par1)
fun1(par1, par2)
fun1(par1, par2, par3)

When I am invoking fun1 wihout parameters, it working …
And question is: How can I invoke, for example, fun1 only with par3 - witch function signature can I use?
Thank you very much.

for all the combinations, you need three method names.

@JvmOverloads
fun fun1(par1 : Int = 1, par2: Int = 2, par3: Int = 3) {...}
@JvmOverloads
fun fun2(par2: Int, par3: Int = 3)  = fun1(par2 = par2, par3 = par3)
fun fun3(par1: Int, par3: Int)  = fun1(par1 = par1, par3 = par3)
fun fun3(par3: Int)  = fun1(par3 = par3)

If you want the jvm-names in reversed order or any other order, you have bad luck and must implement it by yourself

Thank you. In fact there are many classes which call API. Theese classes are CGLIBed on runtime, so I cannot make combination for every function with default values. I was afarid, that this will not be easy if even possiible.
