    EJB QL returning null, it should not

    info note Newbie

      This EJB QL query is returning null, when it should not. Can someone point me in the right direction.
      What is wrong with my EJB QL query?

      And i call it from the struts action.

      Thanks in advance.

      public java.util.List findTrip(String placefrom, String placeto) throws Exception{
       List q = null;
       try {
       q = (List) em.createQuery("SELECT OBJECT(b) FROM Bookingline b WHERE " +
       "b.bkLPlaceFrom = :sessionName AND b.bkLPlaceTo " +
       "= :sessionName2").setParameter("sessionName",placefrom)
       } catch (NoResultException en) {
       en.printStackTrace(); // just to be sure, maintain this enabled until finish debugging.
       return q = null;
       } catch(Exception ex) {
       ex.printStackTrace(); // just for debugging. You will find errors like missing space between WHERE and clauses...
       throw ex; // just rethrow exception...
       return q;
       public java.util.List tripSearch(String placefrom, java.lang.String placeto) throws Exception {
       List q = null;
       q = findTrip(placefrom,placeto);
       System.err.println(q==null?"tripSearchReturned NULL":"tripSearch returned "+q.size());
       return q;
