[jdom-interest] Problems with getChildren() and java.util.List

Trying to compile the following code

import org.jdom.*;
import org.jdom.output.*;
import org.jdom.input.*;
import java.io.*;
import java.util.*;
Element root = doc.getRootElement();
List children = root.getChildren();

I get this error:

Test.java:66: incompatible types
found   : com.sun.java.util.collections.List
required: java.util.List
                        List children = element.getChildren();

I have tried to figure out the reason, but I didn't find any helpful replies that were being sent to people having the same problem.

I'm using sdk 1.4.0 and jdomb8. There is no other sdk installed on my machine.

Does anyone show me the way?

Thanks in advance,
