Line number 67 of your servlet is throwing the exception.
Just check whatever objects you have there, can they be null?
If yes, then either do a null check or make sure they are non null.

Thanks.The below line is line no:67.


abstractMeetme.getMeetMe();


getMeetMe() is the method of the abstract class AbstractMeetMeEvent.In the definition for the AbstractMeetMeEvent.java, the following is given.


protected AbstractMeetMeEvent(Object source)
{
super(source);
}


Now what i have to do in my code.If it needs an object,what should i do there?please guide me.

It would appear that you have no object associated with the variable abstractMeetMe. Check carefully where that object is supposed to be initialised.

If that doesn't help, make sure the meetMe variable is not null.
