orig synopsis: "Method byte code size is too small" (filed against 1.2.1_03 java_solaris)
Currently the size of a Java method is limited to 65535 bytes. Is this limitation going to be removed. If so when? Do you have a work around?

java version "1.3.0"
Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.3.0)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.3.0, mixed mode)
Virtual machines do not load methods with more than 64K bytes.
This is a big problem because the java code in question is not hand written, but is generated by automatic translators and code generators.

Proposals for new features in the Java Virtual Machine are no longer being accepted or maintained in the bug database at http://bugs.sun.com/.
All proposals for new features should be made through the "JDK Enhancement - Proposal & Roadmap Process" described at http://openjdk.java.net/jeps/1.
Consequently, this specific request to change the Java Virtual Machine will not be considered further.
The bug database continues to accept and maintain submissions about technical errors in the design and specification of the Java programming language and the Java Virtual Machine.
Tim, is this an issue with JDK 1.4? If not then can we close this one out?
We will be considering this as part of a JCP initiative for 1.5.
