Problem conclusion

  • A fix has been made in Rational Integration Tester 8.5.1.2 to
    the migration utility that is used to migrate GH Tester 4
    project data to GH Tester 5 and Rational Integration Tester 8.0
    or later. The fix resolves an issue that could cause a
    "com.ghc.ghTester.gui. SubscribeActionDefinition cannot be cast
    to com.ghc.ghTester.gui. ReceiveRequestActionDefinition"
    exception to occur during migration.
