Getting error while giving a string input to google search in selenium java

I am trying to automate the process of searching in google. When I am giving an input string to the search box it is giving an error saying:

The method sendKeys(CharSequence[]) in the type WebElement is not applicable for the arguments (String).

Please help!

The two possible solution to the problem can be:

  1. Change the compiler version from old version to 1.5 or greater.
  2. Change the JRE version from JRE8 to JRE7.
Or just change the way you provide input string to sendKeys()
  1. Create a CharSequence[] ch={"Your string you want to search"};
  2. element.sendKeys(new String[]{"Your string you want to search"});
Hope this helps.
