Failed To Convert Value Of Type 'org.springframework.web.multipart.commons.CommonsMultipartFile' To Required Type

I have following controller method:

@RequestMapping(value = "/owner/terminals/save", method = RequestMethod.POST)
public String saveTerminal( @RequestParam(value = "name") String name, 
                            @RequestParam(value = "file") @Valid OnlyForImagesFileWrapper file,
                               BindingResult bindingResult )
             {
                ...

and I see the following stacktrace:

    org.springframework.beans.ConversionNotSupportedException: Failed to convert value of type 'org.springframework.web.multipart.commons.CommonsMultipartFile' to required type 'com.terminal.domain.validation.OnlyForImagesFileWrapper'; nested exception is java.lang.IllegalStateException: Cannot convert value of type [org.springframework.web.multipart.commons.CommonsMultipartFile] to required type [com.terminal.domain.validation.OnlyForImagesFileWrapper]: no matching editors or conversion strategy found

OnlyForImagesFileWrapper source:

public class OnlyForImagesFileWrapper {
    @Extensions(imageFormats = {".jpg",".png",".gif",".bmp"}, videoFormats = {})
    private MultipartFile multipartFile;
    ...
}

How to avoid the problem?

Where can I set conversion politic for this controller method for multipart file?

P.S.

I tryed to write my custom initbinder:

@InitBinder
    public void initBinder(WebDataBinder binder) {
        binder.registerCustomEditor(CommonsMultipartFile.class, new PropertyEditorSupport() {
            @Override
            public void setValue(Object file) {
                setValue(new OnlyForImagesFileWrapper((MultipartFile) file));
            }
        });
    }

But this method doesn't invoke when I submit form and I see stacktrace mentioned above.

P.S.

result after M. Deinum instruction execution(when I inside saveTerminal method):

Also I noticed that my initbinder method doesn't invoke.

More details about my code(state after M. Denium advice):

jsp:

<input type="file" id="newFile" name="file" class="file" size="21.5" accept=".jpg,.png,.gif,.bmp" style="opacity: 0;">

arguments of controller method:

...
@ModelAttribute @Valid OnlyForImagesFileWrapper wrapper,
                               BindingResult bindingResult,
...

Answer

As I commented you are making things too complex. Change your wrapper to the following (with the appropriate getters and setters).

public class OnlyForImagesFileWrapper {
    @Extensions(imageFormats = {".jpg",".png",".gif",".bmp"}, videoFormats = {})
    private MultipartFile file;
    private String name;
...
}

Then your controller method

@RequestMapping(value = "/owner/terminals/save", method = RequestMethod.POST)
public String saveTerminal( @ModelAttribute @Valid OnlyForImagesFileWrapper wrapper, BindingResult bindingResult ) { ... }

And of course in your configuration make sure you have a MultipartFileResolver configured to properly handle the MultipartFile argument as explained in the reference guide.
