The “Preview” button will let you see the compiler errors. Here’s the first error I get when I ran your code:

com.github.javaparser.ParseException: Encountered "  "CategoryService "" at line 10, column 9.
Was expecting one of:
    "class" ...
    "enum" ...
    "interface" ...

This is what we have on line 10 of ContactServiceImpl.java

private CategoryService category Service {

So it’s seeing CategoryService and was expecting some other keyword like class, enum, interface. In this case, I think it should be class. What we want to do here is define an interface in ContactService.java and a class that implements that interface in ContactServiceImpl.java

The best video for you to reference for this is a couple steps back here.

Let me know if you have more questions.
