    Default Pass text to jTextArea class from another class(different layers)

    I have two classes. One is a GUI with a textArea, a jButton and a method to set text in the text field. The other contains just one simple void method called setString which needs to pass a string to the first class. I think everything is as it should be, but somehow it gives me a bunch of exceptions

    Here's the first class(The GUI)
    Java Code:
    private JTextArea getJTextArea() {
    		if (jTextArea == null) {
    			jTextArea = new JTextArea();
    			jTextArea.setBounds(new Rectangle(11, 6, 417, 160));
    		return jTextArea;
    	 * This method initializes getParts	
    	 * @return javax.swing.JButton	
    	private JButton getGetParts() {
    		if (getParts == null) {
    			getParts = new JButton();
    			getParts.setBounds(new Rectangle(232, 174, 193, 25));
    			getParts.setText("SET TEXT");
    			getParts.addActionListener(new java.awt.event.ActionListener() {
    				public void actionPerformed(java.awt.event.ActionEvent e) {
    		return getParts;
    Here's the second
    Java Code:
      public void setString()
        	 gui1.setTextMainField("THIS IS PASSED FROM SECOND CLASS");
