    Unhappy EventDispatch NullPointerException

    I am writing a fairly complex (for me) user interface. It gets no compile-time errors,
    but running it (in Eclipse) gets a null pointer exception which Eclipse reports like this:

    Thread[AWT-EventQueue-0] (Suspended (exception NullPointerException)
    = EventDispatchThread.run() line: not available
    Thread [AWT-EventQueue-0] (Running)
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre6\bin\javaw.exe (Date and Time)

    Can you shed any light on this?

    Try running it at a command prompt away from the IDE to get a normal java error message.
