Subject Re: URLResponse from Restcontroller with Hibernate circular relationships
Date Tue, 04 Mar 2014 22:00:15 GMT

Can you debug where exactly a problem with circular references exists ?
Is it during serialization of your data ? StringTemplate? IOUtils?

Many serialization techniques/libs do have problems with such references,
be it JAXB or GSON. For JAXB you can setup @Transient annotation.

How about a quick fix, that removes one side of relationship in Hibernate
entities making it uni-directional instead of bi-directional e.g. reverse
side ?
