This works for you because 4.0 is the class argument to jcall, and it
ends up being passed as a java.lang.Float.

You'll get an error if you try it with 4.0d0, or if you have your
*read-default-float-format* set to double.

(jcall (jmethod "java.lang.Float" "compare" "float" "float") nil 4.0s0 5.0s0)


(jcall (jmethod "java.lang.Float" "compareTo" "java.lang.Float")
       4.0s0 5.0s0)
