My Java-code gives "java.lang.NullPointerExeption".
Please tell what usually makes it, and why it comes

Commented:
A NullPointerException is generated when you try to access a method or variable in the 'null' object. Usually it is caused by accessing reference variables without assigned them to an object first.
