Hello, I´m doing the pez challenges again to review, and I´ve got the Example and PezDispenser files filled out but the compiler wont work and i don´t understand what it´s telling me. any help?

-Example.java- 1) public class Example 2) public static void main(String[] args) { 2) System.out.println("Woo a new pez thing is on the way!"); 4) PezDispenser pez = new PezDispenser("Bob"); 5) System.out.println("The new pez thing will be called %s\n", pez.getCharacterName()); 6) } 7) }

-PezDispenser.java- 1) public class PezDispenser { 2) private String mCharacterName; 3) 4) public PezDispenser (String characterName) { 5) mCharacterName = characterName; 6) } 7) 8) public String getCharacterName() {
9) return mCharacterName; 10) } 11) }

This line:

System.out.println("The new pez thing will be called %s\n", pez.getCharacterName());

Should be using printf for printing formatted code.

OOOhh I remember you mentioning that now
