Still getting this error 'Component to add cannot be null' after using nullable=false

Hi, i’m new at vaadin. before i explain, i’m sorry if my english is not good.

So, i’m trying to show data from database (im using postgreSQL) to vaadin grid. i keep getting this error even i’m using @NotNull, @NotEmpty, and adding nullable=false at @Column.

do you have any solution? thanks

Can you please post the stacktrace with the full error message?

yes, full error message
“org.springframework.beans.factory.BeanCreationException: Error creating bean with name ‘com.toraco.application.views.parkingreport.ParkingReportView’: Instantiation of bean failed; nested exception is org.springframework.beans.BeanInstantiationException: Failed to instantiate [com.toraco.application.views.parkingreport.ParkingReportView]: Constructor threw exception; nested exception is java.lang.NullPointerException: Component to add cannot be null”

Edit : parking-report is ‘view’ code

can you please post that as text

Spring is complaining when trying to create the ParkingReportView

The problem is that in the method getToolBar() you are returning null instead of the toolbar

oh yea, you’re right, thanks alot for helping me :pray:

i was trying to find the problem for like 1 hour

Glad it works!

When getting an exception always check the last exception. That’s the cause
