this is the most important part to look at: java.lang.NullPointerException at sl314.domain.WordCategoryDAO.selectAllCategories(WordCategoryDAO.java:38) NullPointer means that you tried to access something on an object which had not been asigned yet, ie the reference was null. For example you get it when you do this: String myString; myString.toString(); when you need to make myString into something before you call a method. ie String myString = new String("Hallo"); myString.toString(); look at line 38 of WordCategoryDAO because you have an error like this!
