Can anybody help me with j-link and jdk1.1.8?

When I try to open a session with the following line

       session = pfcGlobal.GetProESession();

I get an exception:

Exception caught: java.lang.NullPointerException
        at com.ptc.cipjava.CIPRemoteApp.getTransport(CIPRemoteApp.java:22)
        at com.ptc.pfc.pfcGlobal.pfcGlobal.GetProESession(pfcGlobal.java:12)
        at start.main(start.java:25)

Or has anybody a good tutorial for j-link?

Thank You for Your help

Exception caught: java.lang.NullPointerException

       at start.main(start.java:25)

My Path and CLASSPATH variables look like as follows:


<JDK Loadpoint>\bin


<JDK Loadpoint>\lib\classes.zip

<J-Link loadpoint>\jars\cipjava.jar

<J-Link loadpoint>\jars\pfc.jar

Compiling is without errors. When I start my applet,
I get always the same errors, if proe is running or not!
Have You any idea?

RE: pro/e j-link

How are you starting your applet - is it from within Pro/E or Outside eg in a browser?.

If it is from a browser, you will have to either connect to Pro/E or start Pro/E. Once you have connected, you can get the session. See below. Here timeout is an Integer for how long it will try to connect. I usually use 20.

            session = connection.GetSession();
          catch(jxthrowable x){

        catch (jxthrowable x){
            JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null,"Could not Connected to Pro/E");

As for tutorials, there are some that are in the Pro/E loadpoint - not brilliant but just enough to get you going.
