What could be the cause?

Hi and thanks for the bug report!

That seems like a bug in the JDBC instrumentation. Which Database, connection pool and JDBC driver (incl. versions) are you using?

Also, could you add some more lines to the Caused by: java.lang.StackOverflowError: null?

The error is too long that cant paste here

Actually, there should be a guard agains this error. Not sure yet why it does not work in your case. Could you try the latest snapshot to see if the error is still present there?

I have downloaded and deployed the snapshot. I will observe and get back
