Subject [jira] [Created] (FELIX-5666) Serializer goes into infinite loop
Date Mon, 31 Jul 2017 05:13:01 GMT
David Leangen created FELIX-5666:

             Summary: Serializer goes into infinite loop
                 Key: FELIX-5666
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FELIX-5666
             Project: Felix
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Converter
            Reporter: David Leangen

I'm only guessing as to what the problem is, following some stepping through the code. I could
not find any similar existing test cases, but if the following does not immediately click
for [~bosschaert], I will try to add one.

It appears that, when serializing an object to a "DTO-Type" object to a Map, some kind of
backing object is created.

If the backing object contains a field that instantiates the same DTO, then the loop gets


public class MyDtoType {
  public String id;

  public MyDtoType( String anID ) {
    id = anID;

  public static MyDtoType error() {
    return new MyDtoType( "ERROR" );

It looks like the serializer keeps calling the error() method infinitely, but I am not able
to easily pinpoint where this happens.
