Null pointer exception while setting android context to application object


      I am trying to connect from android to sup server. But I am getting a different kind of issue.  For the first time if i were run the application getting an exception saying connection properties null but from the second time onwards getting a null pointer exception at the line   “app.setApplicationContext(getApplicationContext());”. and below is the exception from second time onwards.


Exception Ljava/lang/NullPointerException; thrown while initializing Lcom/sybase/messaging/common/ClientConfig;

My code:

Application app = Application.getInstance();



Manifest file:



        android:targetSdkVersion=”18″ />

    <uses-permission android:name=”android.permission.INTERNET” />

    <uses-permission android:name=”android.permission.READ_PHONE_STATE” />

    <uses-permission android:name=”android.permission.CHANGE_WIFI_STATE” />

    <uses-permission android:name=”android.permission.ACCESS_WIFI_STATE” />

    <uses-permission android:name=”android.permission.ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE” />

I am sure that the problem is not with the code but with the configurations.  But I could not able to find it out where exactly the issue is.  I have tried even downloading a sample project “SUP101” getting the same error.

Can any body help me in this regard.
