LIKE ignores DIM...

From the manual...
When the LIKE keyword is specified, the item being defined takes on the
length and the data format of
the item specified as the parameter.

When LIKE is used to define an array, the DIM keyword is still required to
define the array dimensions.
However, DIM(%elem(array)) can be used to define an array exactly like
another array.

It was a combination of the two things, I typed the object name like David
mentioned and I needed to add Dim(2) after the Like statement to get it to
work. Not quite sure why I needed the dim(2) there as Values is already
defined as an array but I'll take it. Thank you for the help. 😊

You typo'ed the class name for String...

Object(*Java:'jav.lang.String')

should be

Object(*Java:'java.lang.String')

Hello,

I'm trying to code my method call in all free but I'm getting the error
NoSuchMethodError when the program tries to call it. I know it's not a
class path error and that it does exist because I have codded it in fixed
format and it calls the method just fine. This is what I have, could anyone
help me out with what I have defined incorrectly please?

Java Code:
public class SignatureGenerator3
{
public static String[] genSignedvalues(String PString1, String
PString2, String PString3, String PString4) {
...
}
}

Fixed format:
d genSig PR O EXTPROC(*JAVA:
d 'SignatureGenerator3':
d 'genSignedvalues')
d STATIC
d
CLASS(*JAVA:'java.lang.String')
d dim(2)
d PassString1 O CLASS(*JAVA:'java.lang.String')
d Const
d PassString2 O CLASS(*JAVA:'java.lang.String')
d Const
d PassString3 O CLASS(*JAVA:'java.lang.String')
d Const
d PassString4 O CLASS(*JAVA:'java.lang.String')
d Const

Free Format:
Dcl-Pr genSig Like(Values) Static

EXTPROC(*Java:'SignatureGenerator3':'genSignedvalues');
PassString1 Object(*Java:'jav.lang.String') CONST;
PassString2 Object(*Java:'jav.lang.String') CONST;
PassString3 Object(*Java:'jav.lang.String') CONST;
PassString4 Object(*Java:'jav.lang.String') CONST;
END-PR;

Dcl-S values Object(*Java:'java.lang.String') Dim(2);

Thanks,
Robert.
