Error description

  • Steps to Reproduce:
    1. Create a new basic model in rational rhapsody for C in 32 bit
    in code centric mode.
    2. Create a new class with an 'Operation' and generate code.
    3. Navigate to a class with 'Operation' and edit its arguments
    from code(*.c and *.h' by either adding a new argument or
    deleting an existing argument.
    4. Navigate to Code-> Round Trip and select 'Default Config'
    5. The existing operation is marked with '<<MergeCandidate>>
    stereotype and a new operation is created.
    6. Rightclicking both the old and new operation and selecting
    'RoundTrip Merge' retains the new changes on the function.
    -----> This is the expected behavior.
    7. Set the following property as mentioned at project level.
       Browser::Settings::ShowOrder = "True"
       Browser::Settings::DisplayMode = "Flat"
    8. Repeat the steps from 3 to 6.
    -----> Inconsitent behavior is observed, which is Rhapsody
    deletes the new version and retains the 'MergeCandidate'
    function.
