null pointer exception when action class calling service method

Hi guys please help me. Am using integration of struts2 hibernate 4 and spring 4 for a simple web app to register and show customers. But i'm getting null pointer exception when my action method tries to call service method.
Earlier i thought it was because struts wasn't able to get values from foms in view page. But when i tried to print those variables it was showing results. So it is obvious that service or dao layer is not working. Please help me.
Action Page

Model

Line 56 is a close bracket in the code you posted above. Did you post the correct code?

Actually line 56 given by stacktrace is line 49(customerService.addCustomer(customer);) in action class.

It looks like you have a Spring problem. Is there a reason you are not using the Spring plugin?.
I'll copy this post into the Spring forum to see if anyone with more experience with it than myself has any input.

Sorry for my delayed response. Its because i don't have my own pc. I'm using the pc in my office. About that spring plugin i'm using the latest spring library jars(spring 4.2.4). Please tell me which all jars should I use in my web app. And thanks for your support.

The easiest way to get the Struts dependencies is to get the Blank Application from the Struts distribution and look at what JAR files it has. Looking at the latest Struts version, those dependencies are:


The Struts distribution includes dependency JAR files for Spring 3.0.5:


The plugin documentation says you can use the latest version of Spring simply by replacing the JAR's with the latest version.
What I would do in your situation is start small and work with the "supported" versions:
1. check the Struts mailing list to see if anyone else is having problems using Spring 4.
2. if nobody reports problems, try to reproduce the sample application in the Spring plugin document using the dependencies included with the Struts distribution.
3. If I could get that to work with Spring 3.0.5, I'd try updating the Spring distribution to 4.
4. Once I have a working example with 4, I'd try to get my application to work with Spring 4.

This way, you start working with the "standard" Struts versions and a well-known example application so you will be able to get support more readily. As you introduce variables, you only introduce one at a time so if/when something breaks, you can more easily isolate the problem.

Thanks Joe for your advice. I will look onto that.
