Running Java Program using AltovaXML2007

I am using AltovaXML2007 API to process and query XML files in my program. The problem is that at run time sometimes the program fails and sometimes it does not. It is really random like out of 5 times running the promram 2 times the program will fail giving NullPointerException.

While debugging I found that the program is failing when I am trying to instantiate the AltovaXMLFactory:

// Get application instance
IAltovaXMLFactory objXmlApp = AltovaXMLFactory.getInstance();

objXmlApp is initialized to NULL in the instances where the program is failing to run giving NullPointerException.

Do you know what might cause the program to randomly crash?

I'm just wondering why you want to us AltovaXML2007 API.

Why not to use xerces, xml4j, xpp, etc.

The less people use the API, the more bugs you would expect...

To tell you the truth, I never liked XML Spy, let alone their API.
