From my js file there is an ajax call with the following data :

Open in new window

And i have a java class like :
import org.codehaus.jackson.annotate.JsonIgnoreProperties;
import org.codehaus.jackson.annotate.JsonProperty;
import org.springframework.web.util.HtmlUtils;

@JsonIgnoreProperties(ignoreUnknown = true)
public class Note {

    private String id;
    private String title;
    private String body;

    public String getId() {
        return id;

    public void setId(String id) { = id;

    public String getTitle() {
        return title;

    public void setTitle(String title) {
        this.title = title;

    public String getBody() {
        return body;

    public void setBody(String body) {
        this.body = body;

    public void parseHtml() {
        body = HtmlUtils.htmlEscape(body);
        title = HtmlUtils.htmlEscape(title);


Open in new window

The controller corresponding to this request is :
   public void createNote(@RequestBody Note note, HttpServletResponse response) throws IOException {

Using debugger i found that although the value for title in note class is getting set properly but i am getting body = null.

what could be reason for that ?
