If the user doesn't input information in all of the TextFields, the following code will cause a run-time error. Because  some value of the getText() are null.  Can anybody tell me how to deal with this situation? Thanks!

void doInsert() throws SQLException
  query = "INSERT INTO GenInf VALUES (" + txtID.getText() + ", '" +
  txtDate.getText() + "', '" +
  txtName.getText() + "', '" +
  txtHost.getText() + "', '" +
  txtLocation1.getText() + "', '" +
  txtLocation2.getText() + "', " +
  txtACFee.getText() + ", " +
  txtACSrFee.getText() + ", " +
  txtACStFee.getText() + ", " +
  txtOCFee.getText() + ", " +
  txtOCSrFee.getText() + ", " +
  txtOCStFee.getText() + ", " +
  txtTShirtP.getText() + ", " +
  txtDinnerP.getText() + ", " +
  xtHousingP.getText() + ", " +
  txtDiscount.getText() + ", '" +
  txtSTFrom.getText() + "', '" +
  txtSTTo.getText() + "')";

Subclass TextField and override getText() so it will return an empty String insted of null:

public String getText()
  String s = super.getText();
  if(s == null) return new String();
  return s;

Then use the new class instead of TextField.
