Hi I am trying to write a simple J2ME application, (I've only started learning it), and am getting the following error:

Unable to create MIDlet null
java.lang.NullPointerException
at com.sun.midp.midlet.MIDletState.createMIDlet(+29)
at com.sun.midp.midlet.Selector.run(+22)

I don't know what's wrong. Any suggestions would be greatfully received. My code is as follows:

import javax.microedition.midlet.*;
import javax.microedition.lcdui.*;

public class HelloWorld extends MIDlet implements CommandListener
{
    private Display display;
    private TextBox textBox;
    private Command quitCommand;
    
    public void startApp()
    {
        display = Display.getDisplay(this);
        quitCommand = new Command("Quit", Command.SCREEN, 1);
        textBox = new TextBox("HelloWorld", "My first MIDlet", 40, 0);
        textBox.addCommand(quitCommand);
        textBox.setCommandListener(this);
        display.setCurrent(textBox);
    }
    
    public void pauseApp()
    {
    }
    
    public void destroyApp(boolean unconditional)
    {
    }
    
    public void commandAction(Command choice, Displayable displayable)
    {
        if(choice == quitCommand)
        {
            destroyApp(false);
            //notifyDestroy();
        }
    }
}

Thanks, sweetchuck

Hi yeah, I was using Sun's Wireless Toolkit 2.5 and I've gotten it working. Simplest of problems. I was writing my own jads for nothing!

Thanks, again,
