Getting error when starting JIRA

I was using mysql databased then just to test I changed to default hsqldb. Now when I am trying to go back to the same configuration I am getting error.

Hi Alok,

java.lang.NullPointerException is a very generic error, you'll probably find more details about this issue into the file atlassian-jira.log, which is located at JIRA_Home directory.

Also, could you give more details about how have you made this database change? Was it through JIRA configuration tool?
