  • Data binding issue String -> Domain Object

    I am new to alot of the technologies employed behind the scene so I will begin with what I am trying to achieve.

    I want to supply a Form with a current setting from the form backing object, but have it be immutable. Upon submission of the form I want to reference the original object supplied to the update form.

    What is happening is that I can get the update form to display the object settings, but upon submission it is coming across as null with a BindingResults error with the error being String -> Object type conversion error. This will work if I bind the property to a form:select/option pair. I took that model from the autogenerated code from Roo.

    My research points to the potential need of a custom DataBinder but I am unsure of whether or not that is necessary or how to approach doing that within the generated code.

    Just tell the existing binder to ignore that field, by adding this method to the controller:

    public void canBeCalledAnything(WebDataBinder binder) {
        binder.setAllowedFields(...);  // leave out the immutable one
