Error description

  • Environment:
    - Microsoft Windows / Linux
        - IBM Rational Software Architect 8.0.4.1/8.5
    
    Reproducible Y/N: Y
    
    Description of problem:
    Internal transitions corresponding to OnEvent actions are not
    imported under their corresponding
    source/target state. They are imported instead under the main
    region of the State machine.
    
    Steps to reproduce
    1. Open IBM Rational Rose
    2. Create a new model: 'Test.mdl'
    3. Add a new state chart diagram to the model
    4. Add in the diagram a state called 'TestState'.
    5. In the Actions tab of the state specification dialog inset a
    new entry.
    6. Open the new entry specification and change the detail of the
    action to pick 'On Event' for the 'When' field.
    (add Event information and action name if you want)
    7. Save the model
    8. Start IBM Rational Software Architect
    9. Go to File-?Import-? Rose model to import the Rose model
    choosing the default options.
    Result:
    The internal transition is imported under the state-machine
    region at the same level as the state
    Expect:
    The internal transition is imported under its corresponding
    state (in this case 'TestState')
    as you would get if you create a new transition by right
    clicking on the state.
    
    Workaround
    none

    Internal transitions created for OnEvent actions are not
    created their corresponding state
    

Problem conclusion

  • As a part of the fix, for internal transitions, the
    transition is now created under a region inside the state
