Java Java Objects (Retired) Harnessing the Power of Objects Exceptions

I'm sure there's some form of issue with my code here:

public class Example {

    public static void main(String[] args) {
        // Your amazing code goes here...
        System.out.println("We are making a new Pez dispenser.");
      PezDispenser dispenser = new PezDispenser("Yoda");
      System.out.printf("The dispenser character is %s\n",
                        dispenser.getCharacterName());
      if (dispenser.isEmpty()) { 
        System.out.println("It is currently empty.");
      }
      System.out.println("Loading...");
      dispenser.load();
      if (!dispenser.isEmpty()) { 
        System.out.println("It is no longer empty.");
      }    
      while (dispenser.dispense()) { 
        System.out.println("Chomp!");
      } 
      if (dispenser.isEmpty()) {
       System.out.println("Ate all the PEZ!");
      }
      dispenser.load(4);
      dispenser.load(2);
      while (dispenser.dispense()) { 
        System.out.println("Chomp!");
      } 

      dispenser.load (400);
        System.out.println("This will never happen!") ;
    }
}

Are you getting some sort of compiler error?

Also, if you put ```java on the line before the code, and ``` on the line after the code, it will make it a lot easier to read. Hope this helps!

Hi Jordan. It would be easier to diagnose if you told us what happens when you try to run this. I gave your code a quick look and it looks okay. I would check the Dispenser code as well.

Can you write down Compiler Error message, it will be much easier to help you.
