Subject [jira] Commented: (LANG-456) HashCodeBuilder throws StackOverflowError in bidirectional navigable association
Date Wed, 24 Sep 2008 15:48:44 GMT


Bob Fields commented on LANG-456:

The other builder methods (toString, compare, equals) specifically check for recursive behavior
and prevent a StackOverflow.

We use HashCodeBuilder globally on all ValueObjects generated by templates using AndroMDA Right now I check for the recursive relationship in the model and remove
one side of the relationship from the HashCodeBuilder generated code output. That defaults
to the hashCode for all attributes (except the recursive one on one side) plus the hashCode
of the ancestor.

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.
