Hello, I am trying to create an MDI application and am having problems with one of the frames. Walking through the errors, the first error points to a list generated by Netbeans code that I think is the null problem. When I look further down the error list, I get to code that I have added in the main frame of the MDI. I was thinking I need to initialize this list from the MonthlyBudgetUI Frame in the MainFrame (at MainFram.<int>). But what I have tried isn't working. I have googled this error message and it seems initiliazing whatever is throwing the null exception is suppose to fix the problem. But I am not sure how to do this. Below is the error message and bits of code found in the first errors. I have another frame that is working just fine, and I created them the same way, so I don't see why I am getting the error now. Thanks in advance for your help. Also, I had tried to add a JTable at first and then deleted it. Maybe that is contributing?

MonthlyBudgetUI code bits:

    private void initComponents() {

     entityManager = java.beans.Beans.isDesignTime() ? null : javax.persistence.Persistence.createEntityManagerFactory("Toben.v2PU").createEntityManager();
     budgetCategoryQuery = java.beans.Beans.isDesignTime() ? null : entityManager.createQuery("SELECT b FROM BudgetCategory b");
     budgetCategoryList = java.beans.Beans.isDesignTime() ? java.util.Collections.emptyList() : budgetCategoryQuery.getResultList();
     entityManager1 = java.beans.Beans.isDesignTime() ? null : javax.persistence.Persistence.createEntityManagerFactory("Toben.v2PU").createEntityManager();
     //BELOW IS LINE 33 - first error message
     list1 = java.beans.Beans.isDesignTime() ? java.util.Collections.emptyList() : ((javax.persistence.Query)null).getResultList();
     jScrollPane1 = new javax.swing.JScrollPane();
     jList1 = new javax.swing.JList();

Main Frame code bits that i added to call the MonthlyBudgetUI frame:

     private void jMenuItem3ActionPerformed(java.awt.event.ActionEvent evt){                                           
     MonthlyBudgetUI monbud = new MonthlyBudgetUI();

  • ((javax.persistence.Query)null).getResultList(); starting inside the brackets you have a null reference. *null* You then cast that to a javax.persistence.Query type, *(javax.persistence.Query) null* but it's still null. Then you use that to try to call getResultList(). Hey presto NPE. Read More


I was trying to connect a JTable to a database created in MySQL. I think that code was generated as apart of that attempt. I just deleted my frame and recreated it with a new JTable and now it works (with the database connection). I really don't know what I did wrong the first time. :( It is working now at least....
