Scenario where NullPointerException occurs

if we have no value in any variable, performing operations by the variable.


String s = null;

NullPointerException :
NullPointerException is a RuntimeException. In Java, a special null value can be assigned to an object reference. NullPointerException is thrown when program attempts to use an object reference that has the null value.

#Invoking a method from a null object.
#Accessing or modifying a null object’s field.
#Taking the length of null, as if it were an array.
#Accessing or modifying the slots of null object, as if it were an array.
#Throwing null, as if it were a Throwable value.
#When you try to synchronize over a null object.


// A Java program to demonstrate that invoking a method
// on null causes NullPointerException

class GFG
public static void main (String[] args)
// Initializing String variable with null value
String ptr = null;

// Checking if ptr.equals null or works fine.
// This line of code throws NullPointerException
// because ptr is null
if (ptr.equals("gfg"))
System.out.print("Not Same");
catch(NullPointerException e)
System.out.print("NullPointerException Caught");

NullPointerException Caught
