Hey there Fabio,

What we are being asked to do in this challenge is create a method that will return all the words with the body of the document, so we should have it require the return of an array of Strings.

Then we can use the split method using the regex \s+ to have it split all words at the space.

The code would look like this

 public String[] getWords() {
   return mBody.split("\\s+"); 
  }

This will loop go through each Body post (The portion that contains the text, return it as an array and give back the result of each word, split at the post. We we will see every word in the body of the post this way.

Thanks.
