      Extracting a new method
    </h1>
    <p>
      In this section, you will improve the code of the constructor of <em>junit.framework.TestSuite</em>. 
      To make the intent of the code clearer, you will extract the code that collects test cases 
      from base classes into a new method called <em>collectInheritedTests</em>.
    </p>
    <ol>
      <li>
        In the <em>junit.framework/TestSuite.java</em> file, select the following range of
        code inside the <em>TestSuite(Class)</em> constructor:<br>
        <p><code>
        Class superClass= theClass;<br>
        Vector names= new Vector();<br>
        while(Test.class.isAssignableFrom(superClass)) {<br>
        &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Method[] methods= superClass.getDeclaredMethods();<br>
        &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; for (int i= 0; i &lt; methods.length; i++) {<br>
        &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; addTestMethod(methods[i],names, theClass);<br>
        &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; }<br>
        &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; superClass= superClass.getSuperclass();<br>
        }</code></p>
      </li>
      <li>
        From the selection's context menu in the editor, select <strong>Refactor &gt; Extract Method...</strong>.
