Cannot resolve method 'before();'

Hi all,

I am following along and Gregg writes the before() method and imports static method from the red lamp icon. I don't have the option of static import, my red lamp has only 'create method before' option.

Anyone have any idea why I am missing the import option? How should I import the before() method manually?

All help would be much appreciated, thank you!

Hi Tuukka,

use this:

import static spark.Spark.*;

And you will have "before" and the other static Spark methods imported.

Kind Regards, Florian

Thank you very much Florian!
