cannot convert from element type org.languagetool.rules.Rule to Rule

Hi,

I’m pretty much a beginner with Java and LanguageTool, and I keep running into an error message when trying to run the simple java application. I have the following code:

import org.languagetool.language.AmericanEnglish;
import org.languagetool.JLanguageTool;
import org.languagetool.rules.RuleMatch;

public class Grammar_Check_Java 
{

	public static void main (String args[])
	{
		JLanguageTool langTool = new JLanguageTool(new AmericanEnglish());
        for (Rule rule : langTool.getAllActiveRules()) {
        if (!rule.isSpellingRule()) {
        langTool.disableRule(rule.getId());
           }
        }
       List<RuleMatch> matches = langTool.check("A speling error");
       for (RuleMatch match : matches) {
       System.out.println("Potential typo at line " +
       match.getLine() + ", column " +
       match.getColumn() + ": " + match.getMessage());
       System.out.println("Suggested correction(s): " +
       match.getSuggestedReplacements());
       }
	}  
}

And I keep getting the following errors:
Exception in thread “main” java.lang.Error: Unresolved compilation problems:

	Rule cannot be resolved to a type
	Type mismatch: cannot convert from element type org.languagetool.rules.Rule to Rule
	List cannot be resolved to a type

	at spell_checker.Grammar_Check_Java.main(Grammar_Check_Java.java:13)

Thanks for any help!

Add
import org.languagetool.rules.Rule;
