Given a mapper SelmaMapper that declares a custom mapper CustomSelmaMapper.
Given this CustomSelmaMapper wants to use SelmaMapper again.
If CustomSelmaMapper initialize SelmaMapper into a field declaration,
When SelmaMapper is first used and initialized,
Then there is a StackOverflowError.

You can find a failing test on this project.

I see 2 possible solutions for this to work correctly as a supported feature in Selma:

  • Add the source mapper as a parameter of the custom mapper either in constructor or mapping method
  • Use an abstract class for the mapper contract instead of an interface and consider non abstract methods as custom mapping methods.

The second one will be supported one day it is a feature we want to implement in Selma but the first one is not expected for now.

Any idea would be appreciated, also please tell me what would be your preferred solution.

I also prefer the second one. I think that this issue is not a blocker at all. I can close it without any esitation
