What was null?
When I get a NullPointerException I usually have to look at the source code to determine what might have been null. Therefore I created a feature request (http://bugs.sun.com/bugdatabase/view_bug.do?bug_id=4834738) to request that NullPointerExceptions include the name of the variable when possible. Do you think that would be useful?
