Cast the "list" to a List when you pass it to the method call:

(List) list

>> List list = new ArrayList();

You don't need to cast, as the ArrayList implements the java.util.List

>> java.util.ArrayList,required: java.awt.List at line 1445, column 17

But java.awt.List is imported wrongly in your code.
So remove that import and change that to java.util.List

Nice catch :)

Yes mmuruganandam ir right, it is expecting an awt not a util list. You either need to pass a java.awt.List or chaneg the parameter method to accept a java.util.List.

I dont pass it. I just use it in a method. Im also getting error for these lines:

list.add(myArray[i]);

return (myClass[]) list.toArray(new myClass[0]);

both give me cannot resolve symbol method

You can only add String to a java.awt.List.
