Unable to Save As a Function rule



Unable to Save As a Function rule.

Error Messages

The code for static initializer is exceeding 65535 bytes limit

Steps to Reproduce

Save As an existing function in a library which has many Rule Utility Functions (RUF).

Root Cause

In the user's environment, the library has multiple RUFs defined. Hence, the class generated for this library contains all these function definitions in static blocks whose size exceeded the 65535 byte limit, due to which the error occurred.

The library is a method to group related RUFs. Creating every RUF together in the same library is similar to a flat structure which results in Compilation errors. In general, the number of RUFs per library should always be reasonable.


Perform the following local-change:

Move some of the RUFs out of the original library to the new library.
