    Question Java NullPointer Exception in Server chat program

    Hi i am having problem with my java chat. when i go to load it i get a NullPointerException i know what code is causeing the problem but im not quite sure what it does can u explain to me please. Ive been looking at this error trying to fix it for a few weeks now and its annoying. Thank you for any help. Here is the code that causes the NullPointerException

         public static final void j()
                String as[] = {
                    "ar", "aq", "ao"
                Class class1;
                Object obj = (class1 = Class.forName((new StringBuilder()).append(com/diginet/oldchat/server/g.getPackage().getName()).append(".an").toString())).getMethod(as[0], new Class[0]);
                    obj = ((Method) (obj)).invoke(null, new Object[0]);
                    Class aclass[];
                    (aclass = new Class[1])[0] = java/lang/String;
                    Object aobj[];
                    (aobj = new Object[1])[0] = obj;
                    for(int i1 = 1; i1 < as.length; i1++)
                        Method method;
                        (method = class1.getMethod(as[i1], aclass)).invoke(null, aobj);
                    q = false;
            catch(Exception _ex)
                ChatServer.q_java_util_Vector_static_fld = new Vector();
            ChatServer.q_com_diginet_digichat_common_SerialInfo_static_fld = null;

    If part of the program uses

    Default Re: Java Server Chat, Help Needed PLEASE!! - NullPointerException

    Sorry but I have no idea what is causing this exception

    I am looking at the code within the other thread too but this doesn't help me either!
