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.
