Java Java Objects (Retired) Delivering the MVP Defaulting Parameters

I have complete the challenge and the output is showing the "1 Yoda PEZ dispenser added to cart." Still getting error.

I have the output showing the output on the output.html but I am still getting an error saying that the System.out is showing up and then the I get a connection error and sends me back to the Java Objects course overview page.

public class Example {

  public static void main(String[] args) {
    ShoppingCart cart = new ShoppingCart();
    Product pez = new Product("Cherry PEZ refill (12 pieces)");
    cart.addItem(pez, 5);
    /* Since a quantity of 1 is such a common argument when adding a product to the cart,
     * your fellow developers have asked you to make the following code work, as well as keeping
     * the ability to add a product and a quantity.
    Product dispenser = new Product("Yoda PEZ dispenser");
    /* Uncomment the line following this comment,
       after adding a new method using method signatures,
       to solve their request in ShoppingCart.java

public class ShoppingCart {

   public void addItem(Product item) {
    System.out.printf("1 %s added to cart.\n", item.getName());
  public void addItem(Product item, int quantity) {
    System.out.printf("Adding %d of %s to the cart.%n", quantity, item.getName());
    /* Other code omitted for clarity. Please imagine
       lots and lots of code here. Don't repeat it. 
public class Product {
  /* Other code omitted for clarity, but you could imagine
     it would store price, options like size and color
  private String mName;

  public Product(String name) {
      mName = name;

  public String getName() {
      return mName;
