Null pointer

I'm working on a simple JSP and I keep getting a null pointer.
My code is:
<% String slurry = request.getParameter("SLURRY");
String part = request.getParameter("PART");

String token = slurry;
StringTokenizer st = new StringTokenizer(token, ",");
The error states that StringTokenizer has a null pointer. I have tested 'slurry' and it has the string in it. What am I missing?

Why are you assigning slurry to token ?

The sample code that I based my JSP on had it that way. I've placed slurry in StringTokenizer, but I still get the null pointer.
I agree. Here's the link:
