    Default Re: java.lang.NullPointerException

    Try using a println to find out which variable(s) have a null value. Put the println on the line before the line that throws the exception. When you find the variable with a null value, back trace the program and see where it should have been initialized and initialize it.
    If you can not locate the problem with the printlns added, post the code with the printlns and your question.
