cannot find symbol get("/hello", (req, res) -> "Hello World");

Hey I'm encountering a problem. I've imported the spark.route.HttpMethod.get like the video suggested but I'm getting a red line underneath my get call.

When I try to compile the code I get the following error:

cannot find symbol get("/hello", (req, res) -> "Hello World"); symbol: method get(String,(req,res)-[...]orld") location: class Main

Is there something that I'm doing wrong?

Probably you import is wrong. Try with "import static spark.Spark.*", it should work.
