Error description

  • If Activity::General::SimulationMode is set to StateOriented
    (overwritten in CGCompatibilityPre80Cpp), Rhapsody somehow
    converts the Control Flow (e.g drawn from Action to Decision
    node or Joint bar) to Object Flow. This problem will be
    reproduced by following steps below.
    
    1. Create a new model in Rhapsody v8.1.3
    2. Set SimulationMode to StateOriented
    3. Create an activity diagram.
    4. Place an Action and Join bar and connect them with Control
    Flow.
    5. Rhapsody automatically converts Control Flow to Object Flow

Problem conclusion

  • Fixed in 8.1.5
    Fixed by changing control flow to object flow only if one of the
    sizes of the control flow is a pin or an object node.
