[fix] NullPointerException Cannot Invoke findById because Repository is null - Java Spring

Exception Stacktrace Extract:
Servlet.service() for servlet [dispatcherServlet] in context with path [] threw exception 
[Request processing failed: java.lang.NullPointerException: 
Cannot invoke "org.code2care.todolist.todolist.entities.ToDoRepository.findById(Object)" 
because "this.toDoRepository" is null]


The reason for this error is that you have defined a member variable of your Repository class in the Spring Controller class but have not @Autowired it. As it is not injected by the Spring IoC container, you get a NullPointerException when you try to do an operation over it


Make sure you add @Autowired annotation above all your repositories in the Controller class,

private ToDoListRepository toDoListRepository;
private ToDoRepository toDoRepository;

Fix - NullPointerException Cannot Invoke findById because Repository is null
