Problem conclusion

  • Fixed in 8.1.5.
    
    please note: the example model is a problematic practice,
    code centric don't support abstractions like activity diagram
    and it nor recommended for two share scope of code centric
    component with any other component.
    It is recommended to keep separate component for the behavior
    diagrams that don't don't share package with the code centric
    component
