Using Console Class
I am having a little trouble using the Console class. I imported the class as well as read on the methods that I need to complete the job. However, it keeps giving a Null Pointer exception.
Console console = System.console(); String username = console.readLine("User: ");
at Next_Palindrome.NextPalindrome.main(NextPalindrome .java:11)
Java Result: 1
Any ideas? This is all the code that is running btw.

What variable is null? Can the console() method run a null value? What does the API doc say?
How and where are you executing the program?

It catches the exception at:Java Code:
String username = console.readLine("User: ");
I am executing the program using the Netbeans IDE on a Windows PC.Tabish Chasmawala

Print out the value of the console variable to see if it is null.
Did you read the API doc for the System class's console() method?
The console() method passes a null exception if the end of stream has been reached

I tried printing out the value of the console variable using this code:
Console console = System.console(); System.out.println(console); System.out.println(console.toString());Tabish Chasmawala
