Request

curl -X POST --header 'Content-Type: application/json' --header 'Accept: application/json' -d '{
"student": {
"address": {
.....
"zipcode": http://localhost:8082/zipcode/1,

}
},
"id": 1,
"zipcode": http://localhost:8082/zipcode/1,

Student.java

@Entity
@Table(name="Student")
@SecondaryTable(name="Student_ADDRESS",
pkJoinColumns=@PrimaryKeyJoinColumn(name="Student_ID"))
public class Student {
@Id private int id;
private String name;

@Embedded
@AttributeOverrides({
@AttributeOverride(name="street", column=@Column(table="Student_ADDRESS")),
@AttributeOverride(name="city", column=@Column(name="CITY", table="Student_ADDRESS")),
@AttributeOverride(name="state", column=@Column(name="STATE", table="Student_ADDRESS")),
})
private Address address;
private Zipcode zipcode;

Answer

It tells you that you should put "" around the urls.

curl -X POST --header 'Content-Type: application/json' --header 'Accept: application/json' -d '{
  "student": {
    "address": {
         .....
         "zipcode": "http://localhost:8082/zipcode/1",

     }
  },
  "id": 1,
  "zipcode": "http://localhost:8082/zipcode/1",
  "name": "John"
 }' 'http://localhost:8082/student'
