You didn't provide enough of the exception output ;-)

Look down the exception information until you find a reference to your class.  This should tell you which file to look in and which line caused the problem.

When you find the line, look to see which object is being used.  It hasn't been set up (so you're getting the NullPointerException).

This looks like Tomcat itself isn't starting up properly.  I haven't used Tomcat 5 yet, so I'm not sure how much use I'll be.

I'll give it a shot anyway.

Originally you said

>> I tried running the progrm that worked yesterday

I assume it worked OK yesterday.  Are you accessing a JSP or Servlet that you've written, or is all this happening when you start Tomcat up?

If Tomcat is trying to dynamically load a class and the classpath has changed between yesterday and today, that could explain it.

Look in Tomcat's  "work"  folder. You should find the file  vol2_jsp.java   .
Tomcat translated your JSP into this file.
Please show us the code around line  268.

What do you mean to say ?  
What are you using to open it ? Get a text editor that shows you line numbers.

Make sure that you are looking in the right file.  If you are seeing lots of unprintable characters (like squares), you haven't opened a .java file.

Open "vol2_jsp.java"

This is basically the Servlet code that Tomcat created from your JSP (just as rrz said).

If you are still seeing squares, please tell us the full path and filename for the file you are opening (and the full path and filename of your JSP).
