I am getting null point error. I am currently trying to connect my spring mvc with mysql.

The problem arises when I try to implement "@RequestMapping" part in Homecontroller file. If i remove this it works fine.

SELECT * FROM details_rssi WHERE Username='pranay@gmail.com' AND Password='ws014';

Homecontroller.java file::

 * Handles requests for the application home page.
public class HomeController {

    private static final Logger logger = LoggerFactory

     * Simply selects the home view to render by returning its name.
    @RequestMapping(value = "/", method = RequestMethod.GET)
    public String home() {

        return "home";


    @RequestMapping(method = RequestMethod.POST)
    public String general(HttpServletRequest request, Model model) {
        conproject obj=new conproject();
        String un=request.getParameter("txtuname");
        String pass=request.getParameter("txtpass");
            try {

            Connection con = obj.getcon();
            String qry = "SELECT * FROM details_rssi WHERE Username='" + un
                    + "' AND Password='" + pass + "';";
            Statement st = con.createStatement();
            ResultSet rs = st.executeQuery(qry);

            if (rs.next()) {
                //HttpSession session = request.getSession();
                //session.setAttribute("user", un);
                return "login_succ";
            } else {

                return "home.jsp";

        } catch (SQLException e) {

        return "login_succ";


     * @return the logger
    public static Logger getLogger() {
        return logger;
