I'm trying to send multiple textarea values from jsp to be inserted into database. However the textarea values are not received in the Action class properly. I get ClassCastException when trying to insert the data into database.

Whats the workaround ?

Please see the file attached for details

It looks like you are trying to cast array of Strings into String. Try casting to Stirng[].

try changing your bean to


private List<String> itemDescription;

public List<String> getItemDescription() {
      return itemDescription;
}
public void setItemDescription(List<String> itemDescription) {
      this.itemDescription = itemDescription;
}

Where you call this:

(String)cvo.getItemDescription()

Open in new window


You should actually call:
((String[])cvo.getItemDescription())[i]

Open in new window


where i is the index of your text item.

object is right .  That works . Awesome!

I just put the generic as object suggested  and the error vanished....excellent.

But why the explicit casting did not work ?  Why the generic worked but explicit cast failed ?

I'm using jdk 1.6 .

because it wasn't a list of strings.
Without the generics it cannot accurately determine what the type of object in the list is
