Re: JsInterop question ...

I haven't found a solution either. 
The final JSInterop version will probably have quite different annotations: (!searchin/google-web-toolkit-contributors/annotations/google-web-toolkit-contributors/Dwdk-aEHs8Y/OvSNe6egUekJ)
There is also a paragraph about overloading methods (espeically regarding Elemental):

Hey everyone, just a quick question regarding JsInterop: how is it proposed to manage javascript functions that can potentially take more than one type of parameter? For example, take the websocket interface:

@JsType(prototype = "WebSocket")
public interface WebSocket extends EventTarget {

... blah blah.

void send(String data);
  // void send(Blob data); <-- JsInterop forbids this


I suppose that the following is possible

@JsType(prototype = "WebSocket")
public interface WebSocket extends EventTarget {

void send(Object data);


but ... this doesn't seem ideal from a Java perspective :)
