Sorry guys not to spam the forum. But new question new post right? So as said in my previous post changing commandname solved the setter not found issue.
Since you apparently can't use form:checkbox as a parameter I changed my jsp and controller;
this us how they look now:
controller:

and jsp:

but now my user is causing a nullpointer?

The stack trace will pinpoint the line where the NPE occurs. Without that, it's simply guesswork.

the first time I use the user generated from my form, that why I thought that my modelAttribute is generating the nullpointer
I used a Sys.out to print the toString of the user and this is the result:
id=0, userName='null', email='null', password='null', repeat='null', gender=M

I noticed that my gender was filled in correctly ,so if I change the parameters of my postMethod to: it works, but do I really need to request each parameter separately?
