Hi everybody Just wrote this script:


When I compile there are no errors.
But when i run i get this error:

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NullPointerException
at Database.main(Database.java:29)


Dont understand why.

Bram

Is line 25 meant to be a useless while? It looks odd to me at that point. Are you missing curly braces?

The notes variable is initialized in the constructor. But no Database object is ever instantiated, so notes is still null. It's a static variable - why are you initializing it in a constructor?
