    Default Static variable

    Consider my code:
    public static Socket sock=new Socket();
    public static Socket recvsock;
    public static SocketInfo ipinfo;



    public static void setSocket(Socket socket)
    {

    sock=socket;
    Log.d(handsOn.Tag, ""+sock.getInetAddress());
    }
    public static Socket getSocket()
    {
    Log.d(handsOn.Tag, "sock"+sock.getInetAddress());
    return sock;
    }

    What variable has a null value when what line is executed? Can you post the full text of the error message?

    Does the code call set before it calls get?
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    Is some other code setting the variable directly? Change the attribute to private to keep any other code from changing it directly.
