Service-SOAP fails to run with byte limit error



When a user runs a SOAP service, it fails with the compilation error on screen.

Error Messages

Failed to compile generated Java com.pegarules.generated.xml.ra_stream_pyanyns_pyanyname_7cb81bf81dae7e823d472bde0bec0b72: ----------
1. ERROR in /com/pegarules/generated/xml/ (at line 72)
public void execute() {
The code of method execute() is exceeding the 65535 bytes limit

Steps to Reproduce

1) Run a SOAP service.

Root Cause

A defect or configuration issue in the operating environment.
One of the XML stream rule was taking more size which is a limitation at java end. Whenever method size exceeds 65535 bytes limit we see this kind of exception/error.


Make the following change to the operating environment:

Split the large XML stream rules into two or more XML stream rules depends on requirement and then call using Apply-Rule mapping mode.
