Subject [jira] Created: (LANG-456) HashCodeBuilder throws StackOverflowError in bidirectional navigable association

HashCodeBuilder throws StackOverflowError in bidirectional navigable association

                 Key: LANG-456
             Project: Commons Lang
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 2.4
         Environment: Widows XP. Sun JDK 1.5 or 1.6.
            Reporter: Bob Fields

This is not the reflection methods, it is the regular HashCodeBuilder append methods. It causes
EqualsBuilder, ToStringBuilder, CompareToBuilder to also throw the StackOverflowException,
but those methods work when one of the HashCodeBuilder bidirectional association attributes
.hashCode() is commented out. The problem is that all of the builders call registerObject()
which creates a hashCode, but only the reflectionAppend method checks if an object is registered.

Bi-directional associations are a very common pattern in Jaxb and Hibernate. In this case,
I generate code from a model in order to avoid the reflection penalty - I already know what
the attributes are at compile time, so I use .append instead of .reflectionAppend.

See attached example + unit test. One side of the bidirectional association must be commented
out in the hashCode method.
