Null URL Exception

I am trying to connect to a servlet via a MIDlet.

However I am getting a Null URL Exception error.

Does this mean anything to anyone?

Here is my code.

Any help would be great.

You're never testing that the value returned here:

String url = getAppProperty("http://localhost:8080/midp/thename");

is not null, so it might be... and in fact, almost certainly is. The argument to this method is supposed to be the name of a property, like APP_URL or something; the value of the property would be the actual URL. You could start by simply changing above to

String url = "http://localhost:8080/midp/thename";

and see if things work; then look into properly storing this url in your JAD file under a name like APP_URL .
