Error description

  • Summary:
    *********
    
    Rhapsody allows creation of illegal join connector on
    statecharts.
    
    description:
    **********
    
    Ideally, the incoming transitions on a join connector cannot
    have a trigger, only the out going transition can have one.
    However, there is a way to create an illegal join connector
    where some incoming transitions have a trigger. This may lead to
    undesired results. Below are the steps to create the illegal
    join connector:
    
    - create the state chart with a join connector with two or more
    incoming transitions and one outgoing transition.
    - delete the join connector.
    - assign triggers to the former incoming transitions.
    - draw a new join connector.
    - connect the former incoming transitions to the new join
    connector. Note that the triggers are kept.
    - connect the former outgoing transition to the new join
    connector. Note that one incoming trigger is deleted, and the
    others are kept.
    
    Attached is a video capture that demonstrates the above
    explained erroneous behavior.
