    Default How to call a non static method from a static method

    Guys Please help:
    I am trying to call a non static method from the main static method but I get an error my code is:
    public class ClassRc1 extends ConfigClass {
        public DefaultSelenium browser;
    	public static void main(String[] args) throws FileNotFoundException, IOException, InterruptedException{
    	    changephoto();
    	}
    		public void login() throws FileNotFoundException, IOException, InterruptedException
    		   {
    		super.connect();
    		String url=super.config.getProperty("url");
    		String username=super.config.getProperty("username");
    		String password=super.config.getProperty("password");
     
    	    browser= new DefaultSelenium("localhost",4444 , "*firefox", "http://"+url);
    		browser.start();
    		browser.open("/");
    		browser.windowMaximize();
    		browser.type("//*[@id='email']", username);
    		browser.type("//*[@id='pass']", password);
     
    		}
    		public void changephoto() throws FileNotFoundException, IOException, InterruptedException{
    			  login();
    			  browser.click("//*[@id='u_0_f']");			
     
    		}
    }
    Could you please tell me if there is a work around.
    Thanks in advance

    Create an instance of the class with the new statement and use the reference to that instance to call its method.
    An example from the posted code:
     browser= new DefaultSelenium("localhost",4444 , "*firefox", "http://"+url);    //  create instance
     browser.start();   // call its method
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
