public class SetInfo extends ActionSupport implements ServletRequestAware{
    private ImageDetail imageDetailBean;
    HttpServletRequest servletRequest;

public String execute() throws Exception
        boolean done=upload();

        return "input"
    private boolean upload() { 
            try {

                    System.out.println("\nServer path:" + filePath+"      "+imageDetailBean.getLogoName()+"......."); 
                    File fileToCreate = new File(filePath, imageDetailBean.getLogoName());

    public void setLogo(File logo) {
        this.logo = logo;

    public String getLogoContentType() {
        return logoContentType;
    public void setLogoContentType(String logoContentType) {
        this.logoContentType = logoContentType;

    public String getLogoName() {
        return logoName;

    public void setLogoName(String logoName) {
        this.logoName = logoName;

public ImageDetail() {
        System.out.print("from the constructor Image detail");

<action name="settingHeader" class="com.webportal.admin.action.SetInfo" method="execute" >
            <interceptor-ref name="fileUpload">
                <param name="maximumSize">2097152</param>
                <param name="allowedTypes">
            <interceptor-ref name="defaultStack">
            <result name="input">/success.jsp</result>
            <result name="success">/error.jsp</result>

when i deploy my application i got nullpointerexception on line number 30 and on line number 29 it prints null on server
please suggest me what can i do...
thanking you

In line number 29 and 30 the code

System.out.println("\nServer path:"+filePath+" "+imageDetailBean.getLogoName()+"......."); 
File fileToCreate = new File(filePath, imageDetailBean.getLogoName());

Rename the code setLogoName -> setLogoFileName
