Well, not to knock down their developers, but that post doesn't look 
like an authoritative sample of working code. ;-)  First of all it isn't 
even valid Java syntax.  It's also different than what you pasted in 
since theirs doesn't try to assign the ErrorType object to a String 
variable.  In short, it doesn't do what you want.

OK, so call a method of the ErrorType class that returns the descriptive 
string you want.  Perhaps .getShortMessage() or .getLongMessage()?  You 
just need to look at what the API provides.

The fact that it's telling you it's got an ErrorType object indicates 
the forEach looping is working correctly.
