Please Login to Remove!


I am j2me api to draw map in such a way that user enter country & map is drawn . my code is

public MyClass(){

public void selectLocation(){
Application.getApplication().invokeAndWait( new Runnable() {

public void run() {
/*try {
final Criteria c = new Criteria();
c.setPreferredPowerConsumption(Criteria.POWER_USAG E_LOW);
lp = LocationProvider.getInstance(c);
} catch (LocationException e) {
if (lp == null) {

lp = LocationProvider.getInstance(null);


if (lp == null) {
Dialog.alert("location not found");
lp.setLocationListener(new MyListener(), 5, 1, 1);


protected void makeMenu(Menu menu, int instance) {

super.makeMenu(menu, instance);
menu.add(new MenuItem("Select Location",1,1) {

public void run() {
MapView _mapv = new MapView();
_mapv.setLatitude((int) (1e5 * lat));
_mapv.setLongitude((int) (1e5 * lng));
Invoke.invokeApplication(Invoke.APP_TYPE_MAPS, new MapsArguments(_mapv));
}catch (Exception e) {


private class MyListener implements LocationListener
public void locationUpdated(LocationProvider provider, Location loc)


lat = loc.getQualifiedCoordinates().getLatitude();
lng = loc.getQualifiedCoordinates().getLongitude();
alt = loc.getQualifiedCoordinates().getAltitude();

catch (Exception e) {
Dialog.alert("Cannot find location");

public void providerStateChanged(LocationProvider provider, int newState) {
// TODO Auto-generated method stub


Above code was creating map for America & Canada only for other countries it is throwing null pointer exception..

Any body knows why it throws exception for other countries
