Error description

  • The root cause of the problem is: RIT generate multiple level
    longfolder name and structure for handling *.serviceagent when
    it import the TIBCO project in workspace.  For every operations
    in the *.serviceagent file, it generate a level of scm
    for the *.serviceagent, scm for the operation definition and
    opr for the operation definition.
    The problem is RIT try to use the full path of the serviceagent
    file for the name of every folder level instead of the content.
    So the full path repeats many times.
    It finally result as unaffordable directory length. I think it
    is not a feature nor enhancement requirement because this
    behavior does not exist in other file type
