I get the following exception when a JFrame is opened with a number of text boxes and combboxes.....

Exception in thread "AWT-EventQueue-0" java.lang.NullPointerException

I can't post the actual code of the JFrame....the application runs in Solaris. Please let me know if anyone else faced this problem and if there is any solution.

Difficult to say much based on this.
Are you using SwingUtilities.invokeLater()?

yes if the thread that invokes the code is not evenDispatchThread I use the invokeLater()
