    Default How to test all files in a folder

    Im doing some junit test. I have a bunch of files in a folder and have to test each one. Some of them freeze during the process that why i added the time out. I wanna do a loop to add all the files to the array and the run the test. As I have it now I have to put what indexes of the list i want to test manually. I tried doing a for loop but it tells me that the method is static and i cant add the files that way.
    Thank you in advance...

    It's hard for us to attempt to compile this because it contains non standard imports and you have provided no link to the junit download.

    As Norm says, It's worth posting the entire error message.

    If it is telling you the method cannot be static, try removing the static modifier in the method.
