    Default Help with method getCodeBase()

    Hi, I'm trying to load an Image for my applet:

    Java Code:
    getImage(getCodeBase(), "ship.gif")
    It compiles fine, but when I try to run it getCodeBase() returns a nullPointerException.

    This is really confusing as I cant find another way to do this...

    Thanks.

    Default

    Applets run in an AppletContext whether provided by the appletviewer or a browser page. If you run an applet from a main method or load the applet into an application there will be no AppletContext and getCodeBase will return null. In this case you can use an alternate/other image loading method. See how to import a picture into an applet for some options.
