You are missing something.

Here you have disabled recursive walking. This means the TreeWalk will
only scan the top level tree, and will *not* dive into subdirectories.

Here you have matched an item in the top level tree that is named
"working".  This is *not* test/files/working, this is just plain old
working.  Which happens to be a TREE:

This is a file called "working", in the "files" subdirectory, of the
"tests" subdirectory of the top level.  Because you handed a path with
/ in it, TreeWalk.forPath setRecursive(true) automatically and was
able to dive into the "tests" subdirectory when it was found, and then
the "files" subdirectory, and then found "working" as a file and
returned it.

forPath is basically:


Which is short for doing this instead:

  while ( {
    if (walk.isSubtree()) {
    ... your other logic ...

That is, when recursive is true you do not see subdirectories, you
only see files.
