Steps to Reproduce

1. Create a data type with sample records(around 100) and a local storage (D_ObjectsList and D_Object) 
2. Create a Page List property (ObjectList) in the data type class context and enable the Allow use as reference property in activities option on the Advanced tab 
3. Create a Page Group property (ObjectGroup) in the data type class context 
4. Create a data transform to initialise the Page Group property with D_ObjectList page  
5. Create an activity with the below steps: 
    a. Apply the data transform that was created in Step 4 
    b. Loop through the Page Group property pages and set Property-Ref with Primary.ObjectList(<APPEND>) = Primary.ObjectGroup(.pxSubscript) 
    c. Perform the Obj-Sort method on the ObjectList property with a unique sort property 
6. Run the TestObjectSorting activity

Root Cause

In Java8, the Sort algorithm changed causing issue with the usecase with the referenced properties sorting.


Apply HFix-46430.
