Issue: Java 64K Method Size Limit

Updated on September 13, 2021


If you save a rule form or compile a rule (when it is first assembled for execution), the generated code may exceed the the Java and JSP 64K size limit.

An error similar to the following occurs:

Failed to compile generated Java
1e06f181051d0fcab429: ---------- 1. ERROR in
ra_flowaction_bbt_olb_onlineaccountopening_newapplication_returnto (at line
292) public void _jspService(HttpServletRequest request,
HttpServletResponse response) throws,
ServletException { ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
The code of method _jspService(javax.servlet.http.HttpServletRequest,
javax.servlet.http.HttpServletResponse) is exceeding the 65535
bytes limit ---------- 1 problem (1 error)

NOTE: This sample error displayed when a flow action rule exceeded the 64K limit. Errors you encounter may differ depending on where in your system the limit is exceeded.



This message describes a Java compiler constraint. You must simplify the rule causing this error so that the resulting Java method size is 64KB or less.
