    You would have to start by looking at the documentation for that class and other related classes. You'll notice that it isn't part of the standard Java API, from my 30 seconds of googling it appears to be from something called "Formula One for Java". It isn't likely that there are a lot of competent users of that package reading this obscure and irrelevant forum, so the chances of you getting an answer here are small.

    So start by reading the docs. If that doesn't help, look for the forum or the mailing list related to the product (whatever it actually is). If you paid money for it there should be support available from the people you paid the money to.
