Hi all,

I have two forms
1. Parent Form
2. Child Form
I have used window.opener.document.Parent_forname.fieldname.value = childform_value

function sendInfo(TxtVal)
window.opener.document.Parent_forname.fieldname.value = TxtVal
window.close(); //Closes the child window

Button in the child form - onclicking = "sendInfo('Passing a Value')"

Now the passing of value from the child form to the parent WORKS FINE on my PC when running through tomcat 8080, but when i upload the application to the tomcat server which is running on my companies intranet, it says that
Parent_forname.fieldname is null or not an Object.

Can any body plz suggest any reason why when the application runs from my PC it works fine, but when the same in run from tomact server which is live it gives a null object error..!!!???

Thanxs in advance.

Hi all,

Yeh my problem is solved. I had searched this forum for access denied error and i cam across this post Java ranch forum - Access denied.

And the url was http://textport:8080/texturl.jsp and the child form url was 1111.22:8080/upload.jsp

When i changed the 1111.22:8080 to textport:8080, its working fine now..!

Any ways thanxs to all.
