[MonetDB-users] JDBC: Problem with PreparedStatement parameter in Buffer

According to function declaration the second argument is float

CREATE FUNCTION Buffer(a Geometry, distance FLOAT) RETURNS Geometry
external name geom."Buffer";

So, why it is not clear what type to be expected ?
Is there any way to use question marks as function arguments?
