Does this only happen sometimes?  “the databaseContext's active editingContext” 
is referring to the active EC, which is transactional (e.g. set at the start of 
an EOF operation and cleared at the end).  If the code is calling into EOF 
without locking, it might result in this.

Hi Chuck,

I followed the steps of the code and I noticed that the object containing the 
to-many relationship in question is being local instanced in a peer editing 
context. The to-many is still an array fault which has not been triggered.

Then when the object in the original context has its to-many triggered, i.e.  
by calling:


Where analysis is the EO and groupings() is the to-many then the exception is 

It appears to have that if I trigger the to-many early on then the exception is 

Anyways, I will experiment a little bit more with the problem and report back. 
I don't recall seeing something like this before and I local instance objects 
from one editing context to another all the time.

A full stack track would help.  It sounds like your code is making a 
relationship between objects in different editing contexts.  Did someone forget 
to add a “localInstance”?

Hi all,

All of a sudden one of our apps started getting this. Does anybody know why 
this would happen? It did not seem to have a problem before until now.

Cannot obtain globalId for an object which is registered in an other than the 
databaseContext's active editingContext,
object: <UBAnalysis pk:"84106">,
databaseContext: com.webobjects.eoaccess.EODatabaseContext@3935ae60,
object's editingContext: er.extensions.eof.ERXEC@4247ac26,
databaseContext's active editingContext: er.extensions.eof.ERXEC@c0fc23d’
