NullPointerException is the exception that occurred when a programmer perform an operation on a object or calling a method on the object i.e null. This exception is thrown by JVM.We should not handle that exception by try and catch block The only way to resolve Null Pointer Exception is to avoid performing the operation on an object or method of the object i.e is null.
