You are attempting to execute the following code:

There's nothing wrong with StringBuffer except that it doesn't want a null argument, it wants a valid String argument.

Now comes the frustrating part. None of that code is your code and the null argument value itself is probably coming from a non-obvious place. For example, you might have a null drop-down menu list.

You can check the JSF page for possible problems. You can check the backing bean(s) to make sure that they don't return null properties. Maybe you'll get lucky.

A lot of times I don't, however and I end up having to set an IDE breakpoint to catch the exception, then start looking at stack frames in the hope that they'll lead me to the offending component.
