    , its bringing a nullpointer error,
    Please copy the full text of the error message and paste it here.
    Look at the line where the NPE happens, find the variable with the null value and backtrack in the code to see why that variable does not have a valid value.


    The code is poorly formatted and that makes it hard to read and understand.
    The {s and }s are not correctly positioned so the nesting of logic can be seen.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    Note: No output is going to the files, all the output here are on the screen.
    Backtracking:
    (1) @ at utilities.FileOutput.print(FileOutput.java:53) the code is : bw.write(str);
    (2) @ at utilities.FileOutput.println(FileOutput.java:63) the code is: print(str);
    (3) @ at SendToOutputFile.main(SendToOutputFile.java:113), the code is: fileD.println(jobAsString, true);
    Hope this gives you enough insight to the problem!

    --- Update ---

    In addition to the above, the number one error @ at utilities.FileOutput.print (FileOutput.java:53) is a method with the follwing code:
     <public void print(String str) throws IOException 
     
        {
            bw.write(str);
     
        }

    There were several error messages mixed in with the program's output.
    In this one there was a varible with a null value at line 113. Look at line 113, find the variable that had a null value and backtrack in the code to see why that variable did not have a valid value.


    Does the code follow these suggestions?
    Did you see the steps I suggested for the program in post#15?
    Here they are again:
    Open some output files to write items to<<<<The files are all opened BEFORE the loop
    loop through a list of items
    write item to one of the files based on its content
    end loop
    close files <<<<<<<<<< The close is after the loop


    It looks like the opens and closes are inside the loop???
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    Happy to inform that I ve got everything running the way I want now. But I need to post a new thread I have two more questions and I shall be done:
    (1) Is how to read from a file
    (2) How to share jobs between threads

    The Scanner class has methods for reading from text files.

    How to share jobs between threads
    Can you explain why you want to use threads.
    What do you mean by "job"
    what is to be shared?
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    I have a thread class that uses threads to generate these jobs, in that class, a range of jobs from 1,000 jobs upto 1,000000 in steps of 2,000 is defined to be generated and sorted. Each set of jobs will be executed by 1 thread, 2 threads, 3 threads and 4 threads. The problem am encountering is that the jobs are not being shared by the threads as each thread in each group is doing the same job and they are even not synchronized. What this mean is that instead of say 2 threads to share 1000 jobs, each of the two thread is executing same thing individually. What that mean is that 2000 jobs are executed by 2 threads instead of 1000 jobs shared between them

    uses threads to generate these job
    Is this "job" some data being written to a file
    or is it the execution of some code?
    The use of the word jobs is ambiguous for me.

    How does the code control which thread gets which "job"? Is there a single source for a "job" that each thread can call to get the next "job"?
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    This set of output am currently writing to output files are exactly what I need to do with the threads. I mean the last problem that just got solved

    Post the code that you are having problems using threads in and explain what the threads are supposed to do.
    The last problem had nothing to do with trying to do parallel processing using threads.

    Here is my thread code, I intend to split the task of generating the jobs in my previous question among different number of threads ranging from 1 to 4.
    The number of the jobs to be generated and writing to those files are specified in the former file called SeveralJobs (which we just got done earlier). What I need do is to share the jobs among the threads equally: Am also to record the time used for doing each set of the execution by each set of thread

    share the jobs among the threads equally
    Does that mean this?
    Say there are 6 jobs and 3 threads:
    thread one does jobs 1 & 2
    thread two does jobs 3 & 4
    thread three does jobs 5 & 6

    Yes, I need the jobs to be shared or split among the threads

    Do you see how to compute which jobs are assigned to each thread?
    Divide the number of jobs by the number of threads and allocate the jobs from that.

    It depends on how the jobs are defined. See my example in post#36
    If the jobs were: 1,2,3,4,5,6 and there were 3 threads
    Then the jobs could be assigned this way:
    thread one does jobs 1 & 2
    thread two does jobs 3 & 4
    thread three does jobs 5 & 6

    Yes, I ve seen that, how to do it that is my question, How do I split the job among threads

    How are the "jobs" defined and created? Do you know how many "jobs" will be created? Can you differentiate between one "job" and another?
    Is there a first "job" and a second "job" and a third "job" etc?
    Can the creation of the first n jobs be given to one thread
    and the creation of the second n jobs be given to another thread?

    Just as stated earlier, the number of jobs to be processed (generated) are specified in the body of the program, this can be changed after every run inside the program. If I can get a general template, algorithm or whatever on how to split (say N-number of jobs) between (say i number of threads) that will be ok.

    Give each thread N/i jobs

    Ok, at what point do I specify that, because I have to specify not just a number but where each thread starts and ends (isn't it?) or can it just be simply specified as N/i? (thanks in advance)

    If all the jobs are in an array, then pass each thread indexes into the array for the first and last job it is to process.
    For N jobs and T threads
    first thread gets: 0, N/T-1
    second thread gets: N/T, 2*N/T-1
    etc

    Can you explain what the program does? What does "not working" mean?
