Unable to run console on Workspace for Creating classes

I am following exactly what Craig is saying in his video but for some reason when I get to the end and try to run console, its giving me a bunch of errors. I have tried to debug them but I can't seem locate them below is my code.


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 Pez Dispenser();
  System.out.printf("The dispenser character is %s\n", dispenser.mCharacterName);




public class PezDispenser{ public String mCharacterName = "Yoda";

Hey Tinashe! Looks like you accidentally added a space between Pez and Dispenser in the following line:

PezDispenser dispenser = new Pez Dispenser();

Change that to PezDispenser() and you should be good to go!

Thanks a ton1

Instead of:

"System.out.printf("The dispenser character is %s\n",dispenser.mCharacterName);", put:

"System.out.printf("The dispenser character is %s\n", dispenser.getCharacterName());"
