Delivering the MVP. Need an extra set of eyes.

Hi!

This code challenge won't complete. It runs fine in Android Studio, but the challenge will not complete. Please take a look and see if I am missing anything.

Thanks

I assume things fail in the fourth part? Everything looks good except for your Example.java code. It'll compile but it won't answer the question asked by Team Treehouse. The first and last name will be passed via the args[] array in main (args[0] and args[1], respectively).
