NumberFormatException in a jsp with a list

This question is another problem im having with my application which is described here. My model (a level) has a list of requirements which contains two strings, an id and name. The model looks like this:

public class Level {
private String name;
private int id;
private int points
private List<Requirement> requirements;
    ....
}

public class Requirement{
    private String name;
    private String id;
    ....
}

and the jsp looks like this:

<div id="allRequirements">
    <c:forEach var="requirement" items="${RequirementList}">
         <div class="requirements">
             <input type="hidden" value="${requirement.id}" name="id"/>
             <h2><c:out value="${requirement.name}"/></h2>
         </div>
    </c:foreach>
</div>

<div id="requiredRequirements">
    <c:forEach var="requiredRequirement" items="${level.requirements}">
         <div class="requirements">
             <input type="hidden" value="${requiredRequirement.id}" name="id"/>
             <h2><c:out value="${requiredRequirement.name}"/></h2>
         </div>
    </c:foreach>
</div>

The jsp page renders fine and works like a charm until I added the requiredRequirements loop in which the site throws a java.lang.NumberFormatException: For input string: "id" because it tries to parse the string as an int.

Does anyone have any idea why the first loop works and the second loop does not work?

Edit: Stack trace

This means that ${requiredRequirement} is actually an instance of List. In EL, a List can only be accessed by an integer index. This can have 2 causes:

  1. Your Requirement class actually implements List or extends one of its subclasses.
  2. The ${level} or ${level.requirements} actually doesn't refer the code you think it does.

As quick debug, try printing them plain to check if their toString() method returns what you would expect:

<p>Level: ${level}</p>
<p>Level requirements: ${level.requirements}</p>

and inside the loop

<p>Required requirement: ${requiredRequirement}</p>
