I am getting the following exception when I am running my Swing Application. But the program continues and does not terminate abruptly unlike general Exceptions

How do I avoid this exception. What would be the cause for such an exception

Exceptions on the EDT do not crash applications. The EDT will start running and processing jobs if/when the EventQueue has new jobs to process.
As for your exception why don't you just set your debugger to stop when it hits NullPointerExceptions..
