Compilation errors can appear as a result of errors in the user code. Errors in the user code might also generate an error in the non-user code for the class.
Compilation errors can be of the following types:
User code errors
Errors can occur in the user code in different sections of the Java editor. User code errors include standard Java syntax and language errors. User code errors might also occur when
adds the user code to the full class code.
For example, a Java transformation has an input field with a name of int1 and an integer data type. The full code for the class declares the input field variable with the following code:
However, if you use the same variable name in the On Input Row section, the Java compiler issues an error for a redeclaration of a variable. To fix the error, rename the variable in the On Input Row section.
Non-user code errors
User code in sections of the Java editor can cause errors in non-user code.
For example, a Java transformation has an input field, int1, and an output field, out1, with integer data types. You enter the following code in the On Input Row section to calculate interest for input field int1 and assign it to output field out1:
adds the code from the On Input Row section to the full class code for the transformation. When the Java compiler compiles the Java code, the unmatched brace causes a method in the full class code to end prematurely, and the Java compiler issues an error.
