    Default Re: Why is my Java Programme getting Problems ?? (Exception in thread "main" )

    Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NullPointerException
    at java.awt.Container.addImpl(Container.java:1090)
    at java.awt.Container.add(Container.java:410)
    at d.dproject.DPuzzle.<init>(DPuzzle.java:61)
    There is a variable with a null value on line 61. Look at line 61 in the your source and see what variable is null. Then backtrack in the code to see why that variable does not have a valid value.
    If you can not tell which variable it is, add a println just before line 61 and print out the values of all the variables on that line.

    The code in the main() method looks unusual. It creates three class objects and doesn't use the reference returned by the new statements anywhere.

    Also variable names don't follow coding standards of starting with a lowercase letter. That makes the code confusing to read because the naming convention says that class names start with uppercase letters.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
