java.lang.NullPointerException
at AccountServlet.doPost(AccountServlet.java:30)
Have you tried to fix this bug yet?
This line is throwing a NullPointerException, which is causing the 500 error code.

Thank you very much.The error is where you have said.I tried to find out the error by using a try /catch block.The mistake I have made is I have been using data.put("userid") instead of data.put(userid) and it happens I did not see it all day.Thanx.
