Subject Re: Need Help w. Null Pointer Exception.
Date Wed, 30 Aug 2006 11:31:22 GMT
getResourceAsStream() will return null if the requested resource is not 
available.  Keep in mind that getRequestAsStream() is rooted to your 
webapp, so the requested image needs to be found relative to the top 
level of your web application.
