    This is not a "mapping" issue - it is a coding issue.

    The error message is telling you that the method you are trying to call must be called by and within an instance of the class, rather than from the "class" itself. A static method can be called from "the class" - like many Math class methods, such as calling Math.pow( 2.3, 4.0). A non-static method must be called from an instance of a class - such as myString.toUpperCase( littlestring ).

    The method you are calling is non-static, and you are trying to invoke it by calling Class.method rather than instanceOfClass.method.
