Hi there...
I ve got the following class where the array is initialized in the class' constructor..

public class Board {
  public Cell board[][] ;
  Board(int x)
  {
board=new Cell[x][x] ;
  }
Is the above correct?

When i try to access the board array after i declare a Board object
for example: a.board[0][1].someMethod()

I get java.lang.NullPointerException..

I am a java newb so any help would be appreciated..
