Spring MVC - Failed To Convert Property Value Of Type 'java.lang.String' To Required Type 'java.lang.Integer'

- 1 answer

Am new to Spring MVC. I have developed a sample application which performs SELECT, INSERT, UPDATE and DELETE.

Below is my Bean class

@Id
@Column
private int student_id;
private String name;
private String age;
private String city;
private String country;
private Integer phone;
private int hsc;
private int sslc;
private int college;

/*getter and setters*/

Below is my Controller Class

@Controller
public class StudentController {

private static final Logger logger = Logger.getLogger(StudentController.class);

@Autowired
private StudentService studentService;

@RequestMapping(value = "/students", method = RequestMethod.GET)
public String listStudents(Model model){
    if(logger.isDebugEnabled()){
        logger.debug("listStudents method is executed!");
    }

    logger.error("This is an error message", new Exception("Testing"));
    model.addAttribute("student", new StudentDO());
    model.addAttribute("listStudents", this.studentService.listStudents());
    return "students";
}


@RequestMapping(value = "/students/add", method = RequestMethod.POST)
public String addStudent(@ModelAttribute("student") StudentDO studentDO){
    if(studentDO.getStudent_id() == 0){
        /**new person, add it*/
        this.studentService.addStudent(studentDO);
    }else{
        /**existing person, call update*/
        this.studentService.updateStudent(studentDO);
    }
    return "redirect:/students";
}
}

Below is my JSP page

<c:url var="addAction" value="/students/add" ></c:url>

<form:form action="${addAction}" commandName="student">

<table>

<c:if test="${!empty student.name}">
    <tr>
        <td>
            <form:label path="student_id">
                <spring:message text="STUDENT_ID"/>
            </form:label>
        </td>
        <td>
            <form:input path="student_id" readonly="true" size="8"  disabled="true" />
            <form:hidden path="student_id" />
        </td>
    </tr>
</c:if>

<tr>
    <td>
        <form:label path="name">
            <spring:message text="Name"/>
        </form:label>
    </td>
    <td>
        <form:input path="name" />
    </td>
</tr>
<tr>
    <td>
        <form:label path="age">
            <spring:message text="Age"/>
        </form:label>
    </td>
    <td>
        <form:input path="age" />
    </td>
</tr>
<tr>
    <td>
        <form:label path="city">
            <spring:message text="City"/>
        </form:label>
    </td>
    <td>
        <form:input path="city" />
    </td>
</tr>
<tr>
    <td>
        <form:label path="country">
            <spring:message text="Country"/>
        </form:label>
    </td>
    <td>
        <form:input path="country" />
    </td>
</tr>
<tr>
    <td>
        <form:label path="phone">
            <spring:message text="Phone"/>
        </form:label>
    </td>
    <td>
        <form:input path="phone" />
    </td>
</tr>
<tr>
    <td>
        <form:label path="hsc">
            <spring:message text="HSC"/>
        </form:label>
    </td>
    <td>
        <form:input path="hsc" />
    </td>
</tr>
<tr>
    <td>
        <form:label path="sslc">
            <spring:message text="SSLC"/>
        </form:label>
    </td>
    <td>
        <form:input path="sslc" />
    </td>
</tr>
<tr>
    <td>
        <form:label path="college">
            <spring:message text="College"/>
        </form:label>
    </td>
    <td>
        <form:input path="college" />
    </td>
</tr>

<tr>
    <td colspan="2">
        <c:if test="${!empty student.name}">
            <input type="submit" value="<spring:message text="Edit Student"/>" />
        </c:if>
        <c:if test="${empty student.name}">
            <input type="submit" value="<spring:message text="Add Student"/>" />
        </c:if>
    </td>
</tr>

Now am facing two issues. 1. After entering the values and clicked Add Student button, am getting the below error.

org.springframework.validation.BindException:     
org.springframework.validation.BeanPropertyBindingResult: 1 errors
Field error in object 'student' on field 'phone': rejected value [9962287970]; 
codes [typeMismatch.student.phone,typeMismatch.phone,typeMismatch.java.lang.Integer,typeMismatch]; 
arguments [org.springframework.context.support.DefaultMessageSourceResolvable: codes [student.phone,phone]; arguments []; 
default message [phone]]; default message [Failed to convert property value of type 'java.lang.String' to required type 'java.lang.Integer' for property 'phone'; 
nested exception is java.lang.NumberFormatException: For input string: "9962287970"]
  1. By default values which I have declared as int are being displayed in my JSP by default as 0. When I changed the phone variable from int to Integer, 0 dint come. Why is it like this?

Answer

The problem is that value 9962287970 is out of range for type Integer.

Integer.MAX_VALUE < 9962287970 

To fix this change private Integer phone; to private Long phone; OR private String phone;

If you use String you can store other chars like + to the variable phone.

refer http://docs.oracle.com/javase/tutorial/java/nutsandbolts/datatypes.html

The defauld value of int is 0 but for Integer it is not zero since it a object, so you have to initialize the value to 0;
