What does the three dots in method parameters mean (like method (String... s)

Code snippet:

AmazonECS service = new AmazonECSQuery(accessKeyId, associateTag);
...
ItemLookupRequest request=new ItemLookupRequest();
...
ItemLookupResponse response = service.itemLookup(request);

Eclipse complains that

The method itemLookup(ItemLookupRequest...) in the type AmazonECS is
not applicable for the arguments (ItemLookupRequest)    Test/src/com/
amazon/webservices/test AWSTest.java

Thanks
