How does the computer understand where the other java file is?

in this video we talked about Example.java and PezDispenser.java. My question is, how does the computer know that those two files go together? I didn't catch in the video an explanation for how java knows PezDispenser.java is a class for Example.java?

Hey Mustafa,

The short answer... if you look at the File Tree, everything for a project will be in one Main Project Folder. All folders, files, etc inside the main folder is one package (project) and can potentially access each other.

Hope that helps some.
