Code Inspection: The relationship defined by this property contributes to a dependency loop

This inspection reports dependent relationship between the classes used in the context of Entity Framework. In the example below, a bidirectional relationship between Person and Animal forms a cycle: a Person has Pets (of type Animal), and each Animal has an Owner (of type Person):

public class Person { public int Id { get; set; } public IList<Animal> Pets { get; } } public class Animal { public int Id { get; set; } public Person Owner { get; set; } } public class Location { public IList<Person> Clients { get; } public IList<Animal> Pets { get; } }
