Steps to Reproduce

Not Applicable

Root Cause

The root cause of this problem is in a third-party product integrated with PRPC.

The error is due to a Java compiler limitation on Methode size text to be not greater than 64 KB.


The explanation for this behavior is as follows:

This is a known limitation with Java compiler. Essentially any Java method size (text size of the method) cannot exceed 64 KB. Since PRPC generates Java dynamically, for very complex rules it is possible to exceed this size when generating code. That is when you get this error.


The only way around is to simplify the rule (Data table in this case). Break it down into smaller segments (smaller tables).
