Hello, I am trying to input data into a mySQL database using a JSP but when I run it through localhost I am getting an error saying- root cause java.lang.NullPointerException.
Dose anyone know what the problem is. I have put my code that is causing the problem below. Its taking in the information from another page alright. It just wont write it to the table. Any feedback would be much appreciated.

<%@ page import="javax.servlet.*" %>
<%@ page import="javax.servlet.http.*" %>
<%@ page import="java.sql.*" %>
<%
Class.forName("org.gjt.mm.mysql.Driver");
String strUrl = "jdbc:mysql://localhost/niall";
Connection conn=DriverManager.getConnection (strUrl, "root", "password");
Statement stmt=conn.createStatement();
Connection con = null;
%>
<% // Fetch the form data
String into = request.getParameter("name");


// save info into the user's session
session.setAttribute("name", into);

//out.println(into); //It prints out here alright so it has takin in the information

String template = "INSERT INTO test (name) VALUE(?)";
PreparedStatement pstmt = con.prepareStatement(template);

pstmt.setString(1, into);
pstmt.executeUpdate();



if (pstmt!=null) pstmt.close();
if (con!=null) con.close();
%>

</li>

You'll need to give us a little more information than that.
What line is generating the NullPointerException?

Post the full stack trace.

root cause

java.lang.NullPointerException
at org.apache.jsp.results1_jsp._jspService(results1_jsp.java:74)
at org.apache.jasper.runtime.HttpJspBase.service(HttpJspBase.java:92)


What's on line 74 of the generated servlet code?
You can find this under {tomcat}work/Catalina/localhost/{your context name}/org.apache.jsp/

By the way: This tedious debugging process is exactly why you shouldn't do database coding directly in a JSP. If you move it to a bean, you can call it from the command line to test it.
