EXEC BAD ACCESS - NSFetchRequest - After 300+ laps of a loop

barneymillsbarneymills Posts: 3New Users Noob
I am running a loop through an array of Dictionary objects downloaded from a mysql server. The loop runs through a few delegate methods before saving each NSDictionary as a "Header" MObj in Core Data... The NSFetch request below is called to see if a MObj instance already exists in Core Data, to decide whether to Insert or Update it.

The code below works fine for anything up to around 300 records and then it produces a Exec Bad Access (code 2). What confuses me is why something is generating a Exec Bad Access after so many successful instances of the same process.


(1) This is the predicate method called to establish if the object already exists in coreData
-(void)addDict:(NSDictionary *)headerIn :(NSString *)accountID{
    NSDictionary *header = [NSDictionary dictionaryWithDictionary:headerIn];
    NSError *error;
    NSMutableArray *pArr = [NSMutableArray array];
    [pArr addObject:[NSPredicate predicateWithFormat:@accountID == %@",accountID]];
    [pArr addObject:[NSPredicate predicateWithFormat:@header_title == %@",[header valueForKey:@header_title]]];

    ListManager *listManager = [[ListManager alloc]init];
    NSArray *predicateArray = [listManager getCoreDataHeaderArray:pArr];

    Header *existingHeader = [predicateArray lastObject];
    if ...


(2) this is the predicate method called above
-(NSArray *)getCoreDataHeaderArray :(NSMutableArray *)pArray{
    NSError *error;
    NSEntityDescription *entityDesc = [NSEntityDescription entityForName:@Header inManagedObjectContext:_context];
    NSFetchRequest *fetchRequest = [[NSFetchRequest alloc] init];
    NSPredicate *predicate = [NSCompoundPredicate andPredicateWithSubpredicates:pArray];
    [fetchRequest setReturnsObjectsAsFaults:NO];
    [fetchRequest setEntity:entityDesc];
    [fetchRequest setPredicate:predicate];
    NSArray *predicateArray = [_context executeFetchRequest:fetchRequest error:&error];
    NSArray *uniqueArray = [NSArray arrayWithArray:[self uniqueArrayByTitle:predicateArray]];
    return uniqueArray;

this is where the BAD EXEC ACCESS falls

Let me know if you need any more information

Any advice on how to resolve this issue would be greatly appreciated .. I am self taught and have a very limited understanding of debugging procedures .. I have activated Zombies but i cannot see where to go from there.
