      Description

      NsTest.printException() contains the following piece of code:

      if (e.getMessage().equals(null))

      { System.out.println("NULL error message detected"); System.out.println("Here is the NULL exection - " + e.toString()); System.out.println("Stack trace of the NULL exception - "); e.printStackTrace(System.out); }

      It's supposed to detect if e.getMessage() returns null. However, if it does return null, calling equals() on the return value will result in a NullPointerException.

      The condition should be changed to (e.getMessage() == null).
