Iterate hashmap problem

I tried to iterate a hashmap in a arraylist and got exceptions: javax.servlet.ServletException: No getter method for property: "listCards" of bean: "categories"

In Action:


I already defined "getListCards" method, why do I get such exception?

Thanks for help!

How are you expecting to iterate over a method which returns a single object not a collection?? The getListCards method must return the entire HashMap for it to be iterated. Also the getter method must not take any arguments. To work with a single card, you can declare another getListCard(String key) method (like the one you have currently but only without the "s" in card as its returning a single card which is just a naming convention)...
