Hi Joe,

Please find comments in-line.

An infinite loop should manifest itself as a stack overflow issue, not an
out of memory one.  I'm not saying it can't happen, but an OOME doesn't mean
that there's an infinite loop.  By your description of the problem, it was a
large model.  So, there are other ways that memory use could explode and we
won't really have a better idea until you try increasing the heap size.
 That's simply the nature of the halting problem.

Certainly.  No one is suggesting to the contrary.  I'm just trying to get
more information to help diagnose the issue.  Without your data model, it's
not something I can easily replicate.

If it is indeed the removing of the foreign key that is causing an OOME, it
still would point at Cayenne operating with insufficient memory.  The
application's memory footprint is not static.

There is no logical entailment from any of the facts that suggest the
problem at this stage.  All we know for certain is you operated on a large
dataset and ran out of memory.  Occam's Razor would suggest you just need
more memory.  Please try bumping the heap size and report and we can get a
better idea.  If it truly is a memory issue, we can investigate reductions
in the allocated memory and provide a different max heap size by default.
