public static void main(String[] args)

I use sublime 2 and it says Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NullPointerException at TreeStory.main(TreeStory.java:17) Thanks

import java.io.Console;

public class TreeStory {

    public static void main(String[] args) {
        Console console = System.console();

String name = console.readLine("Enter your Name:  ");
      String adjective = console.readLine("Enter an adjective:  ");
      console.printf("%s is very %s", name, adjective);
      }

} ```

I think we need to see more code as the problem is reportedly on line 17, which doesn't seem to be shown here (I count up to 13 lines in the code above) :).
