how to tell 2 methods are override-equivalent

( I'm not sure if this is the right alias to ask the question, please 
help forward if necessary. )

I have a question about telling whether one method is subsignature of 
another one. My situation is,

1. there is a TypeElement *t1 *which represents, and a 
ExecutableElement *m1* which represents getContent(java.lang.Class*<?>*[]),

2. there is a String *t2* which is "", and another String 
*m2 *which is "getContent(java.lang.Class[])".

The difference between m1 and m2 is that, m1 is an instance of 
ExecutableElement, m2 is an instance of String; there is a wildcard type 
argument in m1.

Is there a way to tell whether m1 and m2 are override-equivalent, m2 is 
subsignature of m1?

I suppose I should use 
javax.lang.model.util.Types.isSubsignature(ExecutableType m1, 
ExecutableType m2), but I don't know how can I convert ExecutableElement 
*m1* and String *m2* to**ExecutableType.

Or I'm in wrong direction?

Thank you
