I am getting the following error message as Output of a tree generating grammar which I am currently writing. 

Exception in thread "main" org.antlr.runtime.tree.RewriteEmptyStreamException: rule sp_decls
        at org.antlr.runtime.tree.RewriteRuleElementStream._next(RewriteRuleElementStream.java:158)

	at __Test__.main(__Test__.java:16)

So the last rules are looking as the following:


          END  -> sp_decls sp_proc_stmts //To ignore the BEGIN and END

sp_decls:  (sp_decl ';')* -> (sp_decl)*;

	          DECLARE_SYM sp_decl_idents
	          (sp_opt_default)? -> ^(TN_DECLARE ^(TN_PARAMS  sp_decl_idents type) ^(TN_TODO sp_opt_default)?)
	        | DECLARE_SYM ident CURSOR_SYM FOR_SYM sp_cursor_stmt ->  ^(TN_DECLARE ^(TN_NAME ident) ^(TN_SELECT sp_cursor_stmt))

There is a TN_CODE token type which I want to use as the root node of the subtree which will then have this TN_DECLARE nodes as child nodes. So I only did rewrite the rules 'between' TN_CODE and TN_DECLARE to remove unnecessary information like the ';' or the BEGIN and END keywords.
So I guess that the error occurs because my test input does not have a DECLARE section, but this is OK because of the rule 'sp_decls:  (sp_decl ';')* -> (sp_decl)*;
' which says that there could be even no one (*=0 or multiple). So has anybody an answer what is causing the issue and how to solve it?
