Error description

  • Changing the event message lable in the browser tree  can fail
    to update the label in the diagram.
    
    [Reproducing Steps]
        (1) Cerate a new Rhapsody model with label mode
        (2) Create 2 classes and drop them onto a new sequence
    diagram.
        (3) Draw a event message between 2 classes on sequence
    diagram
        (4) Create a new event from feature dialogue of event
    message.
    
        [ in v8.1.4/v8.1.5/v8.2 ]
        (5a) Change the event label name in browser, the the same
    event label name in SD is changed automatically.
        (6a) Change the event label name in SD, the the same event
    label name in browser is changed automatically.
        (7a) Repeat steps 5a - 6a, sometimes the synchronization
    doesn't works, and then the synchronizing continuously work.
                The problem in 7a occurs frequently in
    'ProductLocale=JA' than 'ProductLocale=EN'
    
    
        [ in v8.1.2/v8.1.3/ maybe including previous version]
        (5b) Change the event label name in browser, the the same
    event label name in SD is always changed automatically.
        (6b) Change the event label name in SD, the the same event
    label name in browser cannot be changed automatically.
        (7b) Once the phenomenon in step 6b occurs, the
    synchronizing in step 5b doesn't work any more.
    
    [Workaround]
    Edit the label in the diagram manually.  This seems to get back
    to a scenario where the browser tree and diagram labels for
    event messages are in synch.  But repeated edits in the browser
    tree for me, can quickly break and fail to update label.

Problem conclusion

  • Issue is fixed.
    Now in both Name and Label mode
    At the moment of Renaming message, when a message is going to
    lost its current Realization
    Rhapsody should notify the user that an operation of that name
    doesn't exist,do you want to create a new one?
    and go according to the user preference.
