Cause Of Exception
I faced this problem and found out that a getter method for a field in my JPA Entity class was not following the proper java bean naming convention , when I was trying to fetch that column in my list page using below Spring MVC code
Code Causing Problem
< table:column label="My Property Label" property="myProperty" id="myclass_myProperty" z="user-managed" / >
The getter method was defined as getmyProperty() , notice "m" I changed it to getMyProperty() and was able to get rid of this exception.
There could be other causes but for me once I understood the problem the solution was very simple.
