Class ShapeRecursionValidator

All Implemented Interfaces:

public final class ShapeRecursionValidator extends AbstractValidator
Ensures that list, set, and map shapes are not directly recursive, meaning that if they do have a recursive reference to themselves, one or more references that form the recursive path travels through a structure or union shape. And ensures that structure members are not infinitely mutually recursive using the required trait.

This check removes an entire class of problems from things like code generators where a list of itself or a list of maps of itself is impossible to define.
