### Cause: java.lang.NullPointerException] with root cause

The wrong information as like as two peas in the mapper file, I ran the code that didn’t upgrade. The result is the same code. It can’t be used here. The springboot version of the previous code is 2.3.7.RELEASE. The current version is 2.2.2.RELEASE
after two hours of crazy inquiries. Finally, the problem is found
in our mapper file, if you want to perform a joint query, you will write a resultmap to put the query results. The class to be jointly queried has an attribute javatype. Set the real class of the object as shown in the figure below

but it is strange that my previous version can run without this javatype, As a result, the version has been reduced, but it can’t run. Do you have a boss to help answer the reason?Is it because the springboot version has been upgraded?

Conclusion: when writing resulmap, you’d better add javatype, otherwise there’s no place to find such errors.
