Error description

  • The section on the online help describing how to work with
    choice point in IBM Rational Software Architect RealTime Edition
    (RSA-RTE) capsule state diagram:
    'Creating conditional branches in capsule-based state machine
    diagrams'
    
    Point 5 indicates that the a transition with else guard is
    mandatory (also referred to as the unconditional transition).
    
    The transition with else guard is not required if there is
    always one guard the evaluates to true. The model is considered
    ill-formed if all guards would evaluate to false. It is
    recommended to always include the else guard.
