Answer:

Possibly Classes With Identical names inside different projects.

I might know the issue. I just recreated a framework I made, and I called it number 2. A lot of the classes had the same name, and same method, inside packages of the same name. This seemed to really confuse the IDE and/or JRE.

I was able to sort of fix the problem, by making sure they weren’t both being imported inside the same project! It is still giving me strange warnings, but it seems to be working correctly. What I would ultimately suggest if this is the case, would be to remove the duplicates from the project all together.
