Default Check string value

Hi all,
I am trying to check String field if it is null or not to excute some commands.
But it is not working ... any help pls ??

String foryear = request.getParameter("foryear");
String decreeno = request.getParameter("decreeno");

I've tried to use :
if (decreeno.length() > 1)
sqlstr = sqlstr + " and decreeno='" + decreeno + "' ";
It is not working .

And when i've tried to use the follwoing :
if ( !foryear.equals( null ) )
sqlstr = sqlstr + " and foryear='" + foryear + "' ";
But I am getting Null Pionter Exeption.

Any Idea pls.

if (foryear != null);

.equals compares strings, you cannot use it to compare to null.
