Hmmm, I'm trying to look at your code, but the stubborn forum software has made it look all wonky. If you use CODE tags when posting code to the forums (see the FAQ at ⇒ UseCodeTags ⇐) they tell it "Hey! Keep your hands off my formatting!" and your code will look just like when you cut and pasted it into the reply. Cool, no?

The error message tells you that the NullPointerException happens at line 30. Which line is this referring to ?

Also, although you check if "conn" is not null, you don't do anything in case "conn" is null.
