i am trying to set the value from the springapp-servlet.xml and it fails to set the property by giving error message
Failed to convert property value of type [java.lang.String] to required type [ProductManager] for property 'productManager'; nested exception is java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Cannot convert value of type [java.lang.String] to required type [ProductManager] for property 'productManager': no matching editors or conversion strategy found
Your ProductManager property in your controller is of type ProductManager yet you are trying to assign the String "productManager" to it. Use ref instead of value here to reference the bean of type ProductManager with an id of "productManager".
