    openinputstream() returns null

    I try to run my first application using web access. Upon execution, N 6021 asks for network connection (I think this is on the Connector.open()) call,

    Connector.open() returns a valid object, the casting to HttpConnection works fine
    A nullpointerexception is thrown between the two textbox calls

    I suspect a bug, or perhaps wrong configuration (however browser works fine)

    Note, I am using gsm-data, not gprs for network communication.

    Anybody used gsm-data communication for an applet with N 6021 ?

    Here is the code extracts

    protected void startApp() throws MIDletStateChangeException {
    System.out.println("StartApp called");
    catch(IOException e)
    catch(NullPointerException ne){

    private void downloadPage(String url) throws IOException {
    StringBuffer b = new StringBuffer();
    InputStream is = null;
    HttpConnection c = null;
    TextBox t = null;
    try {
    long len = 0 ;
    int ch = 0;

    c = (HttpConnection)Connector.open(url);
    is = c.openInputStream();

    Re: openinputstream() returns null

    It seems like your textbox object is null, or the getString() method returns null ?

    You should not catch NullPointerException, as it is only thrown if you are trying to call a method (or accessing a variable) on a null object, that is, you can prevent that from happening just by checking if a particular object is null before using it.
