Error description

  • System Requirement:
    Rhapsody 8.2 64 bit
    Rhapsody 8.1.5 64 bit.
    Eclipse Mars  64 bit 4.5.2
    
    Steps :
    I have used a system where there is no Rhapsody installed
    -Install Rhapsody 8.1.5 64 bit in system.
    -Install Eclipse Mars 64 bit
    -Make platform integration for Rhapsody plugin
    -Install Rhapsody 8.2 64 bit in system
    -Open Rhapsody modeling perspective in eclipse
    -Open Rhapsody 8.1.5 Dishwasher Sample in eclipse
    
    Mouse pointer keeps loading infinity. This scenario happens also
    if you click in any of the project which is already opened.
    I have attached a video file here , where the issue can be see.
    
    This scenario happens only when the COM server is higher than
    the eclipse plugin version . As in this case COM server is 8.2
    and eclipse plugin version is 8.1.5.
    
    So as per my understanding if COM server is in higher version
    than the eclipse plugin , it should not create any issue. In one
    of my earlier explanation I have got the update as below.
    The Eclipse plugin can only work with Rhapsody COM server of
    equal or greater version.
    This is because newer Rhapsody COM server version includes all
    API's of older Rhapsody COM server version, and possibly more
    API's.
    But  not the other way around.
    Rhapsody COM server with older version than the Eclipse plugin
    version may fail to supply the API's, therefore we do not allow
    it.
