I am testing an application using Selenium WebDriver with Java. I am using TestNG framework to develop my test cases. The issue is that I all my test method are throwing Null Pointer Exception and as a result tests fail. If I handle the exception with Try Catch the test pass but I understand that is not the right way.

I am getting below errors:

Generally null pointer exception is thrown when you try to use an object reference with null value. Here you get exception in line number 70 of LoginPageTest.java. Make sure that you use an object that has a proper reference. Paste the code snippet here to get a better understanding.
