tFilelist get 2 out of 3 files (or more)

Hello everyone,


Can anyone help me fix this : 


I'm trying to get the 2 most recent files from my SFTP out of 3 files in the directory. So i'm using a tFileList, listed by modification date. The order of files given by this component is right (checked with tLogRow). Tho, I have no idea how to only get the TWO most recent files out of it. Using " ((String)globalMap.get("tFileList_1_CURRENT_FILE")) " is only good for getting the 1st file. Here is my job :

What i have tried in tJava_2 :


String array = ((String)globalMap.get("tFileList_1_CURRENT_FILE"));

java.util.ArrayList filesname_array =new java.util.ArrayList ();



But since I can only Iterate on tJava, it delete my ArrayList each time. So the println is right, but my array has only 1 value.... Can anyone help?

+ questions : Once i get those 2 files, any idea how to manage the output considering my job?
