varargs is patented!?

Eric | May 23, 2008

imageVarargs is a feature that allows you to pass a variable-length list of arguments to a method, e.g. in Java 5. The implementation in Java boxes these arguments automatically into an array, which makes the implementation backwards compatible. As I just found out, this technique has actually been patented by HP. Interesting… I wonder whether Sun actually licensed that technology for Java somehow.
