I experience a NullPointerException inside the Applet.getCodeBase() method, when I start my applet from the filesystem. When i start the applet from the webbrowser, everything is fine. I am using firefox.
The behaviour I expected: The returned URL points to the directory, that was passed as param "codebase" to the applet from the browser.
Here is my stacktrace: java.lang.NullPointerException at java.applet.Applet.getCodeBase(Unknown Source) at eniac.AppletStarter.openStream(AppletStarter.java:113) at eniac.util.EProperties.<init>(EProperties.java:28) at eniac.util.EProperties.getInstance(EProperties.java:41) at eniac.AppletStarter.init(AppletStarter.java:42) at sun.applet.AppletPanel.run(Unknown Source) at java.lang.Thread.run(Unknown Source)

Sorry, folks. I got confused by too many singleton patterns. The instance of the Applet was an instance not created by the browser, but by a constructor-call from my code. So it had no appletstub attached...
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
