Error description

  • Environment:
    ? ? - Microsoft Windows / Linux
    ? ? - IBM Rational Software Modeler 7.5.5.3
    ? ? - IBM Rational Software Architect 8.x
    
    Reproducible Y/N: Y
    
    Description of problem:
    The validation rule called 'Element Identity Constraint' under:
    Window-?Preferences-?Model Validation-?Constraint-?Referential
    Integrity
    and with the following definition:
    --
    Constraint ID: org.eclipse.gmf.runtime.emf.core.UUIDConstraint.
    This constraint has error severity and executes in batch
    (on-demand) mode.
    Description:
    This constraint validates each element's identity is unique and
    referenceable.
    This constraint is mandatory.
    ----
    does only find duplicate ids located in the same resource (
    Model:.emx or fragment:.efx)
    If the ids are duplicated across multiple resources (model and
    fragments), they will not be found
    and cannot be fixed.
    
    
    Steps to reproduce:
    Run the validation on a model which contains multiple duplicate
    ids scattered between the model and its fragment
    (i.e extra fragments).
    Actual result: No validation error will be found.
    Expected result: The constraint should run the validation on the
    overall model scope and allow the quick fix
    on all the elements which have the same unique id.
    
    Workaround
    None.

    Mutlipe duplicate ids contained in a model across fragments
    are not found by the Element Identity Constraint.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Added a constraint which will report duplicate GUIDs in the
    fragments.
