PezDispenser.java or Example.java

I forgot why we use PezDispenser.java for some code and Example.java for other code of the same function?

You can look at Example.java as a bunch of manual tests (it is an example usage of PezDispenser) to see if the implementation of PezDispenser is correct. PezDispenser is the class that we are interested in implementing and can use in different projects where we need a PezDispenser. Therefore we would like to have this code in two files, since it is only PezDispenser that should be used by others, while Example.java is for us to ensure that the PezDispenser works.
