This question already has an answer here:

What should I do with my question:

Should I use different method names or overload parameters in Java?

Since it appears to have been answered on another Stack Exchange site:

Should we rename overloaded methods?

I didn't search Programmers (although, it would be nice if Stack Overflow did that for me when I write out the questions title). The reason I haven't closed the question outright is because I think it's still a valid Stack Overflow question, but maybe I'm wrong about that.

What course of action is the norm in this case?
