When extending a class that defines a method with the signature "public void load();", I get the following load time error:
java.lang.ClassFormatError: Duplicate method name&signature
Looking into javap, I see that in fact gen-class is generating two entries for the load method. Prefix does not help in this case, as the defined load method is generated anyway.
