Illegal Argument Exceptions -- Java

I have been having trouble with this step in the Java course. I feel that I wrote my code the same way the instructor has his, but when I try to execute I get Pages of errors.

I do not know what I have done wrong, it might be simple like a misplaced set of curly braces. Here is the link to my code. https://w.trhou.se/ewr8tohxr2

Please help if you see the problem.

That link isn't working - can you re-post it?

I turned the link into a snapshot. I hope that I can get some help with it.

HI Robbie,

This isn't correct:

  public void fill() {

You're calling the method from inside itself. In this method you want to set pezCount to be equal to MAX_PEZ.

Try that and see if it clears your errors.
