Error description

  • when using an interface class in Rhapsody in C which has an
    operation and this operation uses variadic function argument
    (property CG::Operation::VariableLengthArgumentList = TRUE),
    then in the function pointer list this variadic parameters is
    not passed.
    Since there seems to be no solution to the problem for standard
    C we assume that the functionality is not faulty, but is not
    supported at all by Rhapsody.
    Therefore, Rhapsody should throw an error in code generation.

    interface operation.
