Error description

  • Problem 1:
    Some asymmetric associations are not exported correctly.
    Refer to AsymmetricBefore.jpg for an example of a set of
    associations between two classes before export. If this is then
    exported as XMI and imported back into Rhapsody it ends up with
    the associations shown in AsymmetricAfter.jpg diagram. The
    problem is that two of the asymmetric
    associations have been incorrectly modelled as attributes.
    
    The attached model Association Problem demonstrates the issue.
    
    Problem 2:
    The XMI toolkit by default should not model any Rhapsody tags in
    its exported XMI. Unfortunately, in Rhapsody 8, any local tags
    on associations between classes appear in the exported XMI. In
    particular XMI is generated which attempts to prepare the value
    of these local tags.
    
    The attached model TagProblem demonstrates the issue.
