Local fix

Problem summary

  • The problem is related to how the bytecode verifier propagates
    the 'uninitializedThis' flag during the verification process.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The JVM has been updated to correctly propagate the
    'uninitializedThis' flag and thus prevent the
    java.lang.VerifyError from occurring.
    .
