Hi there,

I'm working on a project where I'm trying to save to file all the objects
contained in a class that extends JPanel and implements Serializable. I attempt the save using the following code:



The save process appears successful since I'm able to open the file and look at it. However, immediately after the save I get the following error at run-time:

There's no reference to any code that I've written in my project, so how am
I suppose to know where to go to fix the problem?

The only thing I understand is somewhere there's a NullPointerException.
But from where does it originate?
