NullPointerException in java is a exception class. It happens when we try to access methods and fields of an object without constructing the object using new keyword.
So, always we need to check the object is null or not like,
if(obj != null){
//logic here
To prevent the program to terminate permanently, we need to use try-catch-finally concepts. Always put the erronus code within try block.
