You generally get a StackOverflowError when a method calls to itself.  So you end up with an infinite loop of calls and run out of memory:

public void callMe(int x) {
    callMe(x) ; // Oops - infinite loop

So if you have access to the code, I'd look for that situation.

Hi Expert,

Already log a case to them and they can't solve thus see if anyone here have knowledge on this.

Sorry, i for one am not willing to support commercial products for free. Gigs or Live, maybe ...
Seems like the correct position for a commercial product.
