My JPA/Hibernate with MySQL/J 8.0.25 works ok.
But today I turned on trace logging , want to inspect the binding value.
I set logback.xml <root level="TRACE"> and observed the test case.
And I noticed it throw exception :

org.springframework.transaction.TransactionSystemException: Could not commit JPA transaction; nested exception is javax.persistence.RollbackException: Error while committing the transaction

Caused by: java.lang.NullPointerException: Cannot invoke "java.lang.Long.longValue()" because "this.value" is null

	at org.jboss.logging.Logger.logf(Logger.java:2398)

How to repeat:
data class Relation(
  @ElementCollection(fetch = FetchType.EAGER , targetClass = String::class)
  @MapKeyColumn(name = "locale")
  @Column(name = "value")
  @JoinTable(name = "RelationName", joinColumns = [JoinColumn(name = "relation_id")])
  val langMap: MutableMap<Locale, String> = mutableMapOf()

interface RelationDao : JpaRepository<Relation, Long>

  fun testMultiValue() {

    val enValue = "value1"
    val zhValue = "value2"
    val rel = relationDao.save(
          Locale.ENGLISH to enValue,
          Locale.TAIWAN to zhValue

It will fail. But if the map contains only one pair of key-value , it will be OK.

If I set the log level to debug or info , it will be OK.
Only 'trace' will be able to observe the binding value , and trigger this exception.

Suggested fix:
com.mysql.cj.ServerPreparedQueryBindValue.java , line 156

from :
return String.valueOf(((Long) this.value).longValue());
Please add null check

other cases the same

Hi Kevin,

Thank you for your interest in MySQL and Connector/J.

I'm unable to reproduce this. Can you please provide a test case written in Java and without using Hibernate? Thanks!

Hi again,

I may not need another test case after all. But, can you please show us the non sensitive connection properties are you setting in your connection string? 

I'd say you are setting at least `useServerPrepStmts=true` and `cachePrepStmts=true`. Can you please try with `cachePrepStmts=false` and tell us the result?
