check this post, learn about objectmapper,jackson and pojo class

Hi @Yash1,

if you are not using the provided getObjectMapper() method for instantiating an ObjectMapper, please try that. Also, while you are at it, check how the method differs

Could you please check -

  • Did you use javatimemodule properly ?
  • Did you use object mapper ?

This problem is solved.
I tried gradle build , and then with the help of index.html file, I corrected those errors step by step. :slight_smile:
