Hello there,

what is wrong with this code. I get this error even though I cast it to Long or am I doing something wrong

java.lang.ClassCastException: java.lang.String cannot be cast to java.lang.Long

Users users = new Users();
users.setId((Long)dsRequest.getFieldValue("id"));

Open in new window


cheers

Looks pretty straightforward to me - getFieldValue() returns a String which you are trying to cast to Long, which can't happen.

java.lang.Object getFieldValue(java.lang.Object fieldName)
           Returns the value for a particular fieldName.

But not one that can be cast to Long evidently.

Check this method perhaps: getClientSuppliedCriteria

users.setId(Long.valueOf(dsRequest.getFieldValue("id").toString()));

Open in new window

could be tried but is almost certainly unnecessary

this is what you have to write:
users.setId(Long.valueOf( (String) dsRequest.getFieldValue("id")));
