Maybe you could elaborate on what are the classes involved or a bit more details of things. It's quite hard to find out your problem.
Perhaps, maybe you are mixing lightweight & heavy weight components in your chat server?

Could you post the complete list of exceptions? It looks like the primary exception is missing.

I agree with you. Does mixing of lightweight & heavy weight components create some problem? what can be done for it?
I m using swing components and awt events in it.

Hi Richa,
There is only one error happening. The rest of the lines are showing you a trace dump so you can see the current stack.
Usually a NullPointerException happens when you try and call a method of a null object. Inside your listener method make sure that all objects you are trying to use are non-null. For example:
if( ob != null )
{
// use it here because it is not null
ob.method();
}
Regards,
Manfred.
