Error description

  • Abstract:
    Inconsistency while drawing two links between two ports
    
    Error Description:
    Rhapsody for System Engineering during modeling when we draw 2
    links between 2 ports (port_1 and port_2 ), both the link refer
    to one link in browser.
    this behavior is correct as according to UML,there can be only
    one connector (Link) between specific 2 parts and specific 2
    ports.
    Thus, any additional draw will refer this one Connector(Link).
    
    However there is inconsistency when we use temporary port (say
    port_3 ) and draw links from existing port (port_1) to port_3.
    this link can be redirected to existing port (say port_2) from
    the port_3 .
    And in browser Rhapsody will show two links between two port.
    
    Steps to reproduce :
    
    1)Create Object Model Diagram (OMD) with 2 links between port_1
    and port_0
    
    2) Create one more port_2 and draw link between port_2 and
    port_0
    
    3)Redirect link from port_2 to port_1 (now link should be
    between port_1 and port_0)
    
    4 ) Observe in browser, two links between 2 ports.

    that there is already an existing link.
