Error description

  • **Problem 1 (which was introduced in v7612.)**
    Unnecessary braces are appended into Generated code.
    Please refer attached image.
    
        [Case 1]
        Below codes in Action of flowchart will be code generated as
    is.
    
        int a = 1;
        int b = 2;
    
    
        [Case 2]
        If below code in Action of flowchart ends with '}'
    
        int a = 1;
        if(a == 1){
        int b=2;
        }
    
        Then a couple of brace are appended in Generated code.
    
        {
            int a = 1;
            if(a == 1){
            int b=2;
            }
        }
    
    
    
        [Case 3]
        If we add  a ';' after '}' in case 2
    
        int a = 1;
        if(a == 1){
        int b=2;
        };
    
        Code are generated as is again. (no unnecessary braces are
    appended in Generated code.)
    
    
    **Problem 2 (which was introduced in v81.)**
    Blank line in Action of flowchart are deleted after code
    generation as below.
    
        [code in action of flowchart]
    
        int a = 1;
    
        int b = 1;
    
        [code after CG]
        int a = 1;
        int b = 1;

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:                                         *
    * Three issues were reported for Rhapsody flow charts:         *
    * 1) Adding extra block brackets around code in actions in     *
    * generated code.                                              *
    * 2) Removing empty lines in actions' generated code.          *
    * 3) Indentation issue in "if...else" declarations in the      *
    * "else" clause.                                               *
    *                                                              *
    * From these 3 issues, only issue 3 was found to be            *
    * regression. The regression was caused due additional tab     *
    * character added to the body of "else" clause.                *

Problem conclusion

  • Fixed in 8.1.4
    1) Rhapsody does not add extra block brackets around actions'
    generated code.
    2) Rhapsody does not remove empty lines in action generated
    code.
    3) Rhapsody sets correct indentation for the "else" clause. The
    additional indentation was removed.
