      Description

      Name: skT45625 Date: 07/31/2000


      java version "1.3.0"
      Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.3.0-C)
      Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.3.0-C, mixed mode)


      Calling new ImageIcon(null,"test") one gets a

      Uncaught error fetching image: java.lang.NullPointerException
      at sun.awt.image.URLImageSource.getConnection
      (URLImageSource.java:102)
      at sun.awt.image.URLImageSource.getDecoder
      (URLImageSource.java:111)
      at sun.awt.image.InputStreamImageSource.doFetch

      at sun.awt.image.ImageFetcher.fetchloop(ImageFetcher.java:217)
      at sun.awt.image.ImageFetcher.run(ImageFetcher.java:185)

      it's a RuntimeException and is thrown by the image fetcher thread (or something
      like that), cause a try/catch arround the 'new ImageIcon(null,"test")' command
      won't help to catch it, it will terminate the running Java application

      Calling JFrame.setIconImage(Toolkit.getDefaultToolkit().getImage(null)); also produces the exception.
