    Default Send File (path) as argument to method

    convert.java
    public class convert {
     
    	/**
    	 * @param args
    	 */
    	public static void getnumber(String[] args) {
    		// TODO Auto-generated method stub
     
    	}


    main.java
    convert.getnumber(list[i].getAbsolutePath());


    Get this error:
    Description Resource Path Location Type
    The method convert(String[]) in the type main is not applicable for the arguments (String)

    How can I solve this?

    What are you trying to do? Where is the array named "list" declared?

    It is properly declared. The list[] is a list of files read from a folder, and I want to pass them one by one to a method to do text file conversion.

    It was solved modifying the convert.java:
    public class convert {
     
    	/**
    	 * @param args
    	 */
    	public static void getnumber(String args) {
    		// TODO Auto-generated method stub
     
    	}
