Complex helper class

Questions around writing code and queries

Thu Aug 20, 2020 6:25 pm Change Time Zone

What is the significance of the complex helper class warning? The reason for it seems difficult to track down. (E.g., the activity might just be a PROJECT statement.)

It affects compile time, and perhaps execution time. And it is not linear. For example, if activity 1 has 20,000 bytes(?) and activity 2 has 14,000, Adding an IF statement creates more than 34,000.

Y := IF (X,
activity 1, activity 2);

Is it a problem? If so, can it be ameliorated?

Context is important. Can you post some example code that demonstrates the issue?
