We are supporting one application that uses applet, There is an software updates happened in our company and then the applet in this particular application is not loading properly in most of the machines. I have checked the JRE versions and it is JRE 1.5.0_15 and JRE 1.4.2_13. In half of the machines the applet is loading fine and others are facing this problem.I have checked the script error which showing in the screen and displays "null pointer exception" which is occurs while trying to load the applet tree. This application is running fine when we tried it from our offshore location. Can anybody help me whether this may happen due to any environment problem.

Welcome to JavaRanch.

What's the applet trying to when the NPE is thrown? Post the full stack trace, and some relevant code excerpt.

The call that's causing trouble is Graphics2D.getFontMetrics. Make sure that whatever is passed in as parameter (a Font object, most likely) describes a font that is available on that system.
