looks like it isn't expecting the value of your checkbox to be "on"

objects can u please elaborate what do u mean by that

I thought if the checkbox is checked it's value should be 1
and if it is not its value should be 0

is that right?

Thanks

no, be default a checked checkbox will return a value of "on"
unchecked will return no value
you can set the value of the checkbox usiong the value attribute in the <intput> tag

You will need to add a check before you use it something like

Integer.parseInt(UploadUtil.getInputValue("DISPLAY_ADD", input_fields.iterator()).equals("on") ? 0 : 1);

so whenever it is on it will return 0 and whenever it is nothing it will return 1. Modify the source code accordingly.
