David Leangen commented on FELIX-5666:
--------------------------------------

Hi [~bosschaert], I have committed an update. Serializing now extends 
Specifying, and the tests are now passing.

> Serializer goes into infinite loop

> 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 created.
> Example:
> {code}
> public class MyDtoType {
>   public String id;
>   public MyDtoType( String anID ) {
>     id = anID;
>   }
>   public static MyDtoType error() {
>     return new MyDtoType( "ERROR" );
>   }
> }
> {code}
> It looks like the serializer keeps calling the error() method infinitely, but 
> I am not able to easily pinpoint where this happens.
