I have an intermittent problem with my application crashing trying to
use the. ServletResponse.encodeURL() method. This is traceable to the
ServletResponse object being null when the method is called.
This bug only seems to occur on the use of

servletResponse.encodeURL(string), and then seemingly randomly. Once it occurrs None of my code works, any code I build and place in tomcat crashes out and displays the same error.

Here is the line of code :

<form name="login" method="POST"
action='<%= response.encodeURL("j_security_check") %>' >

and the error message :
