this code generally works (accesses thousands of urls successfully), but once in a while i get a null pointer exception on particular HttpURLConnections, and its always the same urls
for conciseness ive trunkated the code to only up to where the exception was thrown.

why could this possibly be happening?

Please CarefullyChooseOneForum. This question is completely not GUI related. I'm moving this thread to our sockets / Internet protocols forum.
