We prefer a linenumber, and a mark, where this line is in the source-code, because we don't like counting to 297, and small differences in the layout may confuse our counting.

... but I found it without that.

You declare 'Statement statement' and 'Connection connection' in your class.
While initialising, you declare a new 'Statement statement' and 'Connection connection' in main, only locally visible, and hiding the class-attribut.
Later the local variable is out of scope - invalid, invisible, - and the class-member is used.
Which is null - has never been initialised.
