Is the database going down for backups every night. If yes, you need to set up a job to restart the jrun after the database comes back up. I had the same problem too.

Besky,
Thanks, that is a good thought , no we are not doing any backup right now, other pages which access the databse are working fine
but one thing i over-ride the session creation in that jsp page
i set session=false in the "page" attribute and i create
the session object by myself like
HttpSession session = request.getSession(true)
is that any problem with session object???
or is there any objects created in the jspinit() method get carbage collected after some times???

hi thomas,
u should not set session=false in ur jsp page.doing this means that no further sessions will be created, even if u try to .try removing that statement from ur jsp page and try again.i think it will work.

You don't say exactly where the NullPointerException is coming from, I should think that would be the first thing to investigate. You should be dumping a StackTrace for that exception - either have an errorPage designated for your JSP or try-catch blocks for the code.
