Seems like you can not do \d{0,15}+ in JavaScript. You have to wrap it in a group (\d{0,15})+ or remove the plus quantifier.


You can easily test this using https://www.regex101.com/#javascript (you need to change the double backslash back to single backslash). On that site you can also see that \d{0,15}+ is allowed for PCRE but not for JavaScript.

Generally GWT tries to convert Java Regex to JavaScript Regex. Not sure to what extend it does so, so maybe your issue can be considered a bug.

With SuperDevMode you detect these kind of errors sooner since you always work with compiled JavaScript.
