Can you please post the stacktrace where the error occurred?

write in your catch block.
try {
  // your code..
} catch (Exception e) {
   e.printStackTrace();
}

Please add the e.printStackTrace() method to your catch block and post the error messages that is printed.
Otherwise the "null" error message is not significant enough.

    public static void main (String[] args) { 
 
        try {

            Connection conn = DriverManager.getConnection(url,"root","mypassword"); 
            
            PreparedStatement stmt = conn.prepareStatement("SELECT * FROM inventorytable");
            ResultSet rs;

It seems that the line:
Array itemnameloc = rs.getArray("itemname");
causes the error.
Do you have a column in your table named "itemname"?

Could you please check if the line in the error message:
at NewClass.main(NewClass.java:17)

is the same you have posted here ? => Array itemnameloc = rs.getArray("itemname");

If not, please post the line that matches line 17 in your source code in your IDE.

If you think rs.getArray() will return all values of the column in a Array then you misunderstood it. If the underlying data is an array type then it returns the array. Very few databases support Array types. MySQL does not support it yet. You have to do as shown below.
import java.sql.*; 
import javax.swing.*;
import java.util.*;
public class NewClass {
 
    public static void main (String[] args) { 
 
        try { 
            String url = "jdbc:mysql://localhost:3306/test1"; 
            Connection conn = DriverManager.getConnection(url,"root","mypassword"); 
            
            PreparedStatement stmt = conn.prepareStatement("SELECT * FROM inventorytable");
            ResultSet rs; 
            rs=stmt.executeQuery();
            ArrayList list = new ArrayList();
  
            while ( rs.next() ) { 
                
                list.add(rs.getString("itemname"));
            } 
            String [] itemnameArray = new String [list.size()];
            list.toArray(itemnameArray);
            System.out.println(itemnameArray);
            conn.close(); 
        } catch (Exception e) { 
            System.err.println("Got an exception! "); 
            System.err.println(e.getMessage()); 
            // prints a detailed error listing
            e.printStackTrace();
        } 
    } 
}

I got this error with that code

Note: C:\Documents and Settings\ALCO\My Documents\NetBeansProjects\JavaApplication59\src\NewClass.java uses unchecked or unsafe operations.
Note: Recompile with -Xlint:unchecked for details.

well that's not an error, just a warning, try this:
import java.sql.*; 
import javax.swing.*;
import java.util.*;
public class NewClass {
 
    public static void main (String[] args) { 
 
        try { 
            String url = "jdbc:mysql://localhost:3306/test1"; 
            Connection conn = DriverManager.getConnection(url,"root","mypassword"); 
            
            PreparedStatement stmt = conn.prepareStatement("SELECT * FROM inventorytable");
            ResultSet rs; 
            rs=stmt.executeQuery();
            ArrayList<String> list = new ArrayList<String>();
  
            while ( rs.next() ) { 
                
                list.add(rs.getString("itemname"));
            } 
            String [] itemnameArray = new String [list.size()];
            list.toArray(itemnameArray);
            System.out.println(itemnameArray);
            conn.close(); 
        } catch (Exception e) { 
            System.err.println("Got an exception! "); 
            System.err.println(e.getMessage()); 
            // prints a detailed error listing
            e.printStackTrace();
        } 
    } 
}
