Description Jaroslav Tulach 2015-12-31 07:11:59 UTC
I have an AST model:

@Model(className = "AST", properties = {
    @Property(name = "children", type = AST.class, array = true),
    @Property(name = "kind", type = SyntaxKind.class),
    @Property(name = "type", type = Type.class),
class ASTCntrl {

and it works OK, even if it references AST recursively. However, if I change:

    @Property(name = "type", type = AST.class),

I get stack overflow after calling "new AST()" as the constructor tries to initializes type = new AST().
