In future, while posting code, please UseCodeTags
I have added them this time for you. As you can see the tags make the code much more easier to read and understand

The stack trace is telling you what is gone wrong


JavaApplication Line 41 is

So the variable "input" is null.

At this point in the code:

the static variable input is null. When passed to the parseResponseString method, the NullPointerException is thrown on the line:

because input is null.

From looking at the whole class, I think you think you are setting the input variable here:

But you are not as you had declared a local variable called input on line 5 of the snippet above. This is used and then discarded once this method completes.

Do you have Oracle installed correctly on the same machine?

If so, go to the command line and type the following:

tnsping xe

What output do you get?
