I'm not sure *exactly* why you got this infinite recursion thing, but
I can tell you that I find it extremely bizarre that you were trying
to make the resource an adapter of your application. Application
objects aren't really meant to have more adapters or components added
to them in regular application code. Where did you get that idea, or
what were you trying to accomplish with it?
