hi all,

I am getting null pointer exception on getAppletContext(), getCodeBase(), getDocumentBase()



Stack trace is

run:
here in init
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NullPointerException
at java.applet.Applet.getCodeBase(Applet.java:152)
at Main.init(Main.java:33)
at Main.main(Main.java:23)
Java Result: 1
BUILD SUCCESSFUL (total time: 2 seconds)


I am not getting solution.

Thanks a lot

What's the main method doing there? You're not trying to run this on the command line, are you? Because then it wouldn't be an applet, and all applet-specific functionality couldn't possibly work.
