    Default File.listFiles(FileFilter) won't compile

    Why won't the following compile?

    FileFilter ff = new FileNameExtensionFilter("...");
    File[] files = new File("...").listFiles(ff);

    Says that there is no listFiles(FileFilter) method of File, but the documentation begs to differ. Using JDK 6 / Eclipse 7.

    That method wants a java.io.FileFilter while you're trying to give it a javax.swing.filechooser.FileFilter.
