I am not sure whether anyone did encounter this problem.
I linked two SysMLPorts(metaclass) from an object(metaclass) to a class(metaclass).
After typecasting the IRPApplication.getSelectedElement() into IRPLink, there will be NullPointerException either in IRPLink.getFromSysMLPort or IRPLink.getToSysMLPort.
This problem will not exist if both of the linked SysMLPorts are from objects(IRPInstance).
Does anyone know how to solve this problem for getting the information from both IRPLink.getFromSysMLPort and IRPLink.getToSysMLPort?
Thank you very much in advance!

I see, but due to some animation reasons, my supervisor insisted to have class to be linked to an object. Now, i defined that those ports must be sub-entity of the class. So when i run my java-plugin by selecting the class from the browser view, I use IRPLink.getFrom/to to get the information of the SysMLPort first, for searching its information from the lower level searching tree. It works but in a more structured way.

right click on the class in the diagram and select "make an object" from the menu... do this for both the classes.
then it will allow to create a link between the object.

That's to instantiate the class into an object. My supervisor shown me that there is a difference in inheriting operations(for State Chart Diagram) when linking class-object or object-object. Some of the operations from the IBD are not inherited into the state chart diagram. Therefore, my supervisor always insist get the link between a class-oject.
Thanks for the tips!
