Error description

  • Attempt to use the "Automatic merging" after modifying the XMI
    option
    
    It incorrectly creates a second model in the Rhapsody browser
    ("TMPProject") instead of a merged model.
    
    It seems recent Rhapsody changes in the default file format
    (sbsx instead of sbs), means the feature requires to save first
    the project in 8.2.1 version, causing this problem

Problem conclusion

  • Automatic merging was using a temporary project out of date.
    The mechanism is now different since a fresh new temporary
    project is always created.
    In addition, a roundtrip issue was transforming a Relation to an
    Attribute. Since the relation was displayed as an Edge, that was
    creating instabilities after merging.
