Dear all,

Below is the code that I am working on. I want to loop through the values of the hashmap "a" . If the value of map "a" matches the value of map "a1". I want to print the corresponding key "hello" in hashmap a1.



But this is the error that I get



What do I do in order to rectify the exception. And how do I get the "hello" displayed in the jsp page?

I'd assume there's some type coercion going on here, thus the error.

i guess you put integer value "new Integer(3)" in a1 map.so you put "new Integer(3)" instant of "new String(3)"
 
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
