Hi,

I have a servlet that processes a simple search after a user submits a string through a form. It works perfectly except when an ' is included. For example: O'toole. When it's included I get a NullPointerException.

Finally, here is the error message I get:


Any help with this would be greatly appreciated!!

Thanks,
Jason
