Error when trying to deploy Ethereum smart contract using web3j

0 votes

I'm trying to deploy a smart contract in java using web3j and Ganache. After the creation of the java wrapper for my contract, the code that I'm using to deploy the contract is:

public void deployGreeter(String pw, String walletFile, String _greeting) throws IOException, CipherException, Exception{
    Credentials credentials = WalletUtils.loadCredentials(pw, walletFile);
    Greeter g = Greeter.deploy(web3, credentials, ManagedTransaction.GAS_PRICE, Contract.GAS_LIMIT, _greeting).send();

}

But I'm getting the following error:

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.RuntimeException: 
com.fasterxml.jackson.databind.JsonMappingException: Can not deserialize instance of java.lang.String out of START_OBJECT token
at [Source: 
buffer(okhttp3.internal.http1.Http1Codec$ChunkedSource@10aa41f2).inputStream(); line: 1, column: 188] (through reference chain: org.web3j.protocol.core.methods.response.EthSendTransaction["error"]->org.web3j.protocol.core.Response$Error["data"])

Caused by: com.fasterxml.jackson.databind.JsonMappingException: Can not deserialize instance of java.lang.String out of START_OBJECT token

I've also tried to deploy another contract, but the error output is the same. Can someone tell me how to solve this?

Create a new credential based on the Credentials.create method and then deploy the contract.

Please see bellow the code that worked for me:

public String deployContract(String privateKey, String _lotNumber, int _weight) throws Exception{
    BigInteger biWeight = BigInteger.valueOf(_weight);
    Credentials credentials = Credentials.create(privateKey);
    cst = CST.deploy(web3, credentials, ManagedTransaction.GAS_PRICE, Contract.GAS_LIMIT, _lotNumber, biWeight).send();
    String ca = cst.getContractAddress();

    System.out.println("Contract deployed! Address: " + ca);
    return ca;
}
