Dear Support Team,

We are using DO version 4.4.3 and we are writing really complex and long lambda expressions. Recently we got a lot of StackOverFlow exceptions when trying to execute queries.

As an example the following method

    public static Expression GetFilterByUserExpression(ParameterExpression param)
        if (Andalus.Security.User.GetCurrentUser().ShowOwnedDocumentsOnly)
            var property = Expression.Property(param, "CreatedBy");
            IQueryable<string> list = null;
            var sess = DomainManager.DemandCompanySession();
                using (sess.DisableSaveChanges())
                    list = Employee.GetGetHierarchicalEmployeesSubordinatesIncludingUsername(Andalus.Security.User.Current);
                    return Expression.Call(typeof(Enumerable), "Contains", new Type[] { typeof(string) }, list.Expression, property);
        return null;

The final query expression is

{All().Where(ent => System.Linq.Enumerable+<DistinctIterator>d__81`1[System.String].Contains(ent.CreatedBy)).Where(ent => ent.BusinessUnitCode.StartsWith("1-02")).OrderBy(ent => ent.CreatedOn)}

when evaluating this query we get StackOverFlow exception.

I there something wrong in this query?

Hello Fawzy,

our LINQ translator is essentially recursive. This means it will overflow stack given sufficiently big expression. However your expression does not look so at all. Since all work is done in GetGetHierarchicalEmployeesSubordinatesIncludingUsername method it's hard to say what is the problem without seeing its source first.

Hello Denis, should I send you the DLL for our model and its dependencies, and if so please give me the mailing address and any related information you need me to include in the mail.

Hello Fawzy, I think it would be better to provide GetGetHierarchicalEmployeesSubordinatesIncludingUsername method source either here or via e-mail:
