Hi Vesko,

The code is perfectly good in Java 5 or later, but there is indeed no such method in JDK 1.4 or earlier. You must therefore have the project JDK set to a 1.4 or earlier version, and/or the compiler language compliance level set to JDK 1.4 or earlier.

Since it's "777" that's being underlined, my guess is it's compiling against a 1.5 library using the JDK 1.4 compiler setting.

I'm with 1.6, but project has been compiled with JDK 1.4 .
Thanks Ernest Friedman-Hill !!!
A lesson for me - from now on, all JDKs installed or just to look in the last line in javadoc .
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
