unexpected constant Error

Hi

I wonder if there is a workaround for this error " Error Occurred While Processing Request  
unexpected constant #127 -1 " The number 127 varies depending on how many lines of JavaScript function I insert.

I'm adding a dynamic menu function that contains 3720 lines. Every time I add the function to the coldfusion template, it generates this error. Even after I remove the function from the template I keep getting the error and the template becomes useless.. Weird uhh? but it's happening to me.

 
Does coldfusion has a limit of lines to be included in a template?

Found this on Macromedia's website of known issues:

Large ColdFusion pages
===============
ColdFusion pages that are larger than 500 KB can cause the following compilation error:
java.lang.IllegalStateException: unexpected constant at coldfusion.compiler.ClassReader.readCpool(ClassReader.java:153)

this happened to me before.

I think i use cf_include statements to workaround this problem.  
This usually happens to me if the files gets too big.
I split the file into multiple small files and 1 file to cf_include them all.


give it a try

regards,
jerry

I tried using includes without any luck. I also tried using <script language="javascript" src="file.js> to avoid having the page with long scripts but doesn't work either.

Are you sure that there is not something else on the page conflicting with this javascript. Do you have any other scripts onthe page.

perhaps a comment that was not closed
<!--- with out --->
or <!--- <!--- --->

or something like that. probably a syntax error or an unclosed tag.
or a # somewhere without the pair.
