OK. first off, looking at that tutorial link. I recommend NOT using that tutorial. It looks like a very recent post, and most of it is using recent stuff.

But his Spring MVC is old style, which is NOT recommended to use.

In his code he extends a Spring controller class, this is a really bad design because now your Controller is tightly couple with Spring. Your Controller should be a POJO.

So while I am ok with most of their middle tier code, He uses the term DAO, most Spring people call it a Repository.

But the MVC stuff is NOT TO BE followed. Please try to find another tutorial to follow.

As far as your error, it is a Hibernate error trying to do some cast.

With a little knowledge, a cast iron skillet is non-stick and lasts a lifetime.
