i tried avoiding the null exception by using the if statement but it didn't work.
the row i choose from the table is full meaning there are no empty attributes. and all the data are imported from a mysql database to the table as String so there can't be any casting errors.
this is the part of the source code with the problem and i will also post the printing method.
i tried debugging the class and when stepping into the first if statement it opened the jTable.java file and pointed at the getSelectedRow() method and this sentence "variable information not available.source compiled without -g option"
sorry about the long exception but i just did copy/paste.
