I am facing a strange issue. My code runs just fine from Netbeans or cmd with



but when I try to run it from the .bat



I get just error in my text file



or a null pointer exception at the line I have new FileReader(nrmavg.txt)

I can provide more code if needed, but I think this may be a windows problem.
Any ideas?

This is a guess, but the file you're trying to read is probably in some folder relative to your working directory, and the working directory is different when you run the code from your batch file.


The mind is a strange and wonderful thing. I'm not sure that it will ever be able to figure itself out, everything else, maybe. From the atom to the universe, everything, except itself.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
