Error description

  • If you re-apply an XML schema to a message action in IBM
    Rational Integration Tester (RIT), the previous settings for
    "Field is optional" and "Ignore rule cache" are lost.
    
    STEPS TO REPRODUCE:
    
    1. Create a test with a Subscribe step and apply a schema such
    as XSD.
    2. Set a message node options "Field is optional" and "ignore
    rule cache".
    3. Save the change.
    4. Open the test action and re-apply the XSD schema and select
    "Retain data".
    5. View the message field from step (2).
    
    EXPECTED RESULTS:
    
    The "Field is optional" and "Ignore rule cache" options remain
    checked.
    
    ACTUAL RESULTS:
    
    The "Field is optional" and "Ignore rule cache" options are now
    unchecked.

    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    * Upgrade to Rational Integration Tester version 8.6.0 which   *
    * includes a fix for this issue                                *
    ****************************************************************
    In the fixed version of Rational Integration Tester, note that
    these settings will be saved when re-applying a schema, except
    in the case of a field being REQUIRED by the schema. In this
    case, if the field has been marked as "Field is optional", and
    then the schema is re-applied, the setting will be removed as it
    should not be optional.
    

Problem conclusion
