The first thing to do is to put an e.printStackTrace() in the catch block. You should not ignore exceptions - at the least print some information to a console or log file.

Thanks for the reply. I did that...But no progress. I executed it in net beans, but didn't get any info regarding any error. Please help me. Here I am posting my new code

That could be the problem. NetBeans is not a browser, so it wouldn't have a proper AppletContext. Create an HTML page with an APPLET tag, and then load that into a browser.

Which means what? Which lines of code of the actionPerformed method are being executed?

Ask yourself this: Under which circumstances would the try/catch block ever be executed?

There should be no code before the opening of the try block. I removed all the form validations code and if else parts and it worked!! But the case is, that code is a must! I must check whether those given fields are empty or not before submitting the form. Actually this code is a part of my java project in my degree. I really appreciate your help. please help me. That form validation is a MUST!

Here's the clue to the solution: The if condition that currently decides whether the try/catch block is executed does NOT check the form input - it checks something else entirely.

Forget about whatever you found or did there; that's not the problem.
