Re: Uncaught exception application 218

Welcome to the forum.


I presume you are a java developer.


This is usually caused by a bug in your program where you are holding the Event Thread.  It might be a listener in the Contact processing or just something in your program that gets carried away. 


Debug your program and figure out what it was doing at the time.


If you are NOT a Java developer, but are a user who has noticed this, then I can tell you that you are in the wrong forum.  You should really post your query here:



In this case I would look at anything you have installed recently.  Perhaps something is dodgy. 


Hope this helps.
