Go through your code and check that all your objects have been instantiated .



will cause a nullpointer exception.

So go through your code on the offending JSP and check that each object has been instantiated



if its a method call creating the object make sure the object has been instantiated in that method.

Please UseCodeTags <--- (click). I added them for you this time. See how much easier it is to read? But your line lengths are still too long and your indentation is all over the place. That makes it difficult for others to read your code.

What IDE are you using? There is usually a simple key combination that will adjust all the indentation and a setup screen where you can set the maximum line length. We can tell you how to find them.

And welcome to the Ranch!

Using scriptlet tags in a JSP page: -20
Writing SQL code in a JSP page: -50
Having SQL Injection in said SQL code: -100
Using an HTML marquee tag ...


Java code belongs in a java class. Not a JSP page.
The standard technique is to use a servlet to run database code, execute sql, put any results required by the JSP page into a request attribute and then forward to said JSP page.

At a guess, the null pointer is the combinatin of these two lines:


Integer count = (Integer) application.getAttribute("pcount");
<%=count++%>


What happens when the attribute is not declared?

This is one of the key reasons for not putting Java code into a JSP page.
It is a pain to debug.

If all that stuff was in separate classes, and a model built in a Servlet for display by the JSP, then you could test it out properly.

As it stands do you even know which bit of your code is causing the NPE?
I don't...

Exactly, step 1 is to refactor your code to remove all Java code form the JSP. That's a bad practice that has been discredited and obsolete for 14 years!

Put simply, don't so this:

in a JSP.
You shouldn't have any Java code in a JSP as it's a pain to debug (as you are seeing).
The general flow should be, the client browser sends a request to the server. This is handled by a Servlet. The Servlet processes the request, gathering the data together for whatever should be sent back to the client. It then forwards to a JSP to handle the display of the data.

That way you can actually debug code like the bit above.
