Hello boys and girls,
I have a jsp page that pops to me this error (I know it is about my JOptionPane)

HTTP Status 500 - Internal Server Error

type Exception report

messageInternal Server Error

descriptionThe server encountered an internal error that prevented it from fulfilling this request.


org.apache.jasper.JasperException: java.lang.NullPointerException
root cause

GlassFish Server Open Source Edition 4.1.1

and the following is my code, let me know what I am doing wrong, a part form being born

<%@page import="BEAN.LoginBEAN"%>
<%@page import="DAO.LoginDAO"%>

<%@page contentType="text/html" pageEncoding="UTF-8"%>
<!DOCTYPE html>
        <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">
        <title>JSP Page</title>
        <form ACTION="Entraste.jsp" METHOD="POST">
            <h1>Iniciar Sesion</h1>
            USUARIO <input type="text" name="txtUsu" value="Ingresar Usuario">
            PASSWORD <input type="password" name="txtPas" value="">
            <input type="submit" name="btnClickPapa" value="Entrar">
                String usuario = request.getParameter("txtUsu");
                String password = request.getParameter("txtPas");
                if(usuario.equals(null) || password.equals(null))
                    %><font color="red">¡Usuario o Contraseña vacios!</font><%
                    %><font color="red">¡Usuario o Contraseña incorrectos!</font><%
                LoginBEAN hola = new LoginBEAN(usuario, password);
                LoginDAO bola = new LoginDAO();

Something in that Java code is null, probably either username or password.

This would have been easier to trace if that code had been in a servlet as it should be.
JSPs should not have Java scriptlets in them.


is not the way to check for null.
If 'usuario' is actually null then this will cause your exception.
You need to do this instead:
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
