android – Attempt to invoke virtual method 'int java.lang.String.hashCode()'-ThrowExceptions

Exception or error:

I’m trying to load images from URL into girdview using Volley Library. For this I’m following this tutorial. When I run my project, it collects all URLs from server database and then store in arraylist. But doesn’t displays images. And I am getting java.lang.NullPointerException: Attempt to invoke virtual method 'int java.lang.String.hashCode()' on a null object reference error. It doesn’t even point to any line number of code where I’m getting this error. See below Logcat Output :

Can anybody help me what is the exact problem and how do I solve this ?

How to solve:

You should check the null values for the image where you are getting the data from the server.

###

Getting string value as null, for this instance shows String.hashcode() error

###

I had same problem. Just found a fix I think. In the link to the server you are trying to communicate with, specify the protocol for communication i.e “http://” or “https://” before adding the domain and all. That fixed it for me. I hope it helps

###

I had this Error in another Content and fixed it by updating the Android SDK in Android Studio.
Maybe it’s helping.

###

My server is https and so was getting a different error. I removed the https and remained with the domain name only and it failed to work so I ended up putting up the https: and contacting my host to ease the security rules on the domain or create special provision for the specific domain. Check where you implement your site url and add http or https depending on how your site looks on browser.

###

Check up your manifest. make sure uses permission internet write up there.
