Selenium getTitle

Hello,
I'm not sure whether getTitle is a Selenium method.  I'm at;
https://code.google.com/p/selenium/wiki/GettingStarted
The example uses;
// Check the title of the page
        System.out.println("Page title is: " + driver.getTitle());

I would like to find the web link/page which explains getTitle.

I have googled it, but the links found do not really explain getTitle.  I also searche for driver class.
Any suggestions?

What has happened to the "Test & Validation" zone?  It is not listed.  Sure wish that E&E had a Selenium expert.
thanks

The documentation is here http://selenium.googlecode.com/git/docs/api/java/org/openqa/selenium/WebDriver.html#getTitle()

The sample you linked does work fine. Make sure you have the imports and the correct version of selenium. What is it doing that isn't matching your expectations?

scrutinizer, I failed to "pay attention to" this; WebDriver driver = new HtmlUnitDriver();
I get it now.
May I keep this question open and ask one more question?

I thought that might be it. If you want to see their example actually run through the browser just change it to WebDriver driver = new FirefoxDriver();

If the other question is relevant to the title of this one, I don't mind trying to answer it. But if it is on a different tangent it might be better to ask a new question so other users can find the solution later (assuming I can answer it) :)

scrutinizer, you are right.  It is best to start a new question.  Plus I don't have one at the moment that pertains to Selenium.
