Error description

  • When importing a Rhapsody model into Eclipse with the Rhapsody
    Platform Integration plugin installed, the user encounters an
    error stating "Invalid Project Description" and "<Project_name>
    overlaps the location of another project <same project_name>"
    
    This error can appear for a variety of different scenarios but
    it is not an accurate error in the following scenario:
    
    1) The name of the folder that contains the Rhapsody model is
    different from the name of the Rhapsody model itself, e.g.
    C:\MyRhapsodyProject\HelloWorld.rpy instead of
    C:\HelloWorld\HelloWorld.rpy
    2) The user copies this folder into their workspace prior to
    importing it, e.g. C:\MyWorkspace\MyRhapsodyProject
    
    In this scenario, the user should be informed that the folder
    name should match the project file name.
