Error description

  • Between IBM Rational Integration Tester (RIT) 8.5.1.4 and RIT
    8.7.0.2 the dialogs for updating a WSDL and a requirement have
    been redesigned.
    
    In RIT 8.5.1.4 when a schema in a WSDL with additional fields is
    refreshed (in Architecture School Synchronization view) and then
    the schema is re-applied to the requirement with "Yes, retain
    content" being selected then then the new fields appear and any
    preexisting fields retain their values.
    
    In RIT 8.7.0.2 when a schema in a WSDL with additional fields is
    rebuilt (in Architecture School Schema Library view) then if the
    check box "Retain existing content" is checked the values are
    retained but the new fields do not appear.  (Conversely if the
    check box is left blank then the new field appears, but all the
    values are blanked out.)  This can be seen in the new message
    preview pane, and subsequently in the requirement.
    
    Either the previous "retain content" behavior (in which values
    and tags mapped by a simple unchanged path are retained, and new
    fields are added) needs to be restored, or a three state
    selection is needed so that one can (verbosely) "retain exact
    content", "replace with blank from schema" or "replace schema
    retaining path matching fields".
