Optional method parameters in java

Earlier this week someone was complaining java didn’t support optional method parameters. In some languages you can assign default values to parameters and if those parameters are not supplied then they will take on their default value. The syntax is usually something like SomeMethod(Param1=”foo”,Param2=2);

Whether this is actually any clearer than method overloading is debatable, personally I find it a little confusing. However, intrigued, I tried to see how close to this syntax it is possible to get in java. The following is as close as I could get, can anyone do better?:

Similar is possible in c# 3.0 with http://compsoc.pastebin.co.uk/20181 (should work with svn mono when compiled like: “gmcs -langversion:linq ./Filename.cs”)
