Error description

  • PRODUCT VERSION
    ITDI 7.1 FP06
    
    
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION
    The project files created by the ITDI configuration editor
    are not suitable to be managed by a version control system
    (such as CVS).
    The following list shows all the major issues about.
    
    a) Attributes "modified", "modifiedBy", "Cycle" and "UUID"
    of the "MetamergeConfig" element present in XML documents
    * <PROJECT-ROOT>/AssemblyLines/<AL_name>.assemblyline
    * <PROJECT-ROOT>/Runtime-<project>/<project>.xml
    are (or can be changed) any time the project is saved, even in
    case of no real changes.
    So, these attributes should be removed.
    
    b) Every time a change is done on the AL <AL_name> a new line is
    added (other then the required changes) between the XML document
    header and the rest of the content on file
    <PROJECT-ROOT>/AssemblyLines/<AL_name>.assemblyline.
    
    c) After the first change on a new AL, an empty "Container"
    element is added in the AL file
    (<PROJECT-ROOT>/AssemblyLines/<AL_name>.assemblyline).
    After any further change to teh AL, an empty line is added after
    such dummy "Container" element.
    
    
    DESIRED BEHAVIOR
    The project files created by the ITDI configuration editor
    have to be suitable to be managed by a version control system
    (such as CVS), as per product docomentation.
    So, at least the following needs are requires:
    
    a) remove attributes described in point 'a' in previus section
    b) remove spurious new lines described in point 'b' abobe
    c) remove the empty "Container" and the spurious new lines
       described in point 'c' abobe.
    

Local fix

  • FIXTST already sent to customer
    

Problem summary

  • TDI Configuration Editor should not make unnecessary changes to
    the project files, this causes the version control systems to
    consider the project files as changed and spawns a new version
    in version control systems.
    

Problem conclusion

  • This is a bug in the TDI code and has been fixed. The official
    fix would be made available in 7.1.0-TIV-TDI-FP0008.
