Retrieve all files

I am trying to write autopsy plugin in python, all what I want is get all the files and post them in interested items. How can I accomplish that below???
I am just doing test & playing around for now, and my simple goal is retrieve all files and post them to interested items.

def log(self, level, msg):
    self._logger.logp(level, self.__class__.__name__, inspect.stack()[1][3], msg)

def __init__(self):
    self.context = None

def startUp(self, context):
    self.context = context

def process(self, dataSource, progressBar):

    msgcounter = 0
    ccase = Case.getCurrentCase().getSleuthkitCase()
    blackboard = Case.getCurrentCase().getServices().getBlackboard()
    fileManager = Case.getCurrentCase().getServices().getFileManager()

//what do do here
files = fileManager.findFiles(dataSource, “”)
numFiles = len(files)
fileCount = 0

    for file in files:
        message = IngestMessage.createMessage(IngestMessage.MessageType.DATA,
                "file name" , str(file.getName() ))

    return IngestModule.ProcessResult.OK

Look at the official tutorial (round files). In this example, you will learn how to add files based on file size. You can easily change that to all files.
