Add up numbers on a table using Selenium

I made a few assumptions on this one. For example the number of rows. Am sure there is a way to determine the row end. Otherwise watch the console as the code runs. It lists the numbers and adds a sum at the end.

import java.util.concurrent.TimeUnit;
import org.openqa.selenium.By;
import org.openqa.selenium.WebDriver;
import org.openqa.selenium.htmlunit.HtmlUnitDriver;
public class AddUpNumbersOnATable {

* The loaded page contains a table for which we want to add up the figures in the Total column
public static void main(String[] args) {
WebDriver driver = new HtmlUnitDriver();
driver.get("");  // Actual loading of website
int sumIt =0;
for (int i=2;i<60;i++){
/* not  knowing how many rows will be returned, I have set 60. This number (i) is part of the xpath
as such a NoSuchElement exception will be thrown at some POINT.class This will be trapped by the catch and
execution will continue*/
String s = driver.findElement(By.xpath("//*[@id='Pg']/div[4]/table/tbody/tr["+i+"]/td[12]")).getText();
if(!s.trim().equals("—")){  //some places are "-". Ignore those
System.out.println(s+ "  (at row: "+i+")"); 
sumIt = sumIt + Integer.parseInt(s);
} catch (Exception e){
