  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • We maintain our model fragments in RTC SCM, therefore we have
    disabled
    the timestamps in the model files by setting:
    Property SupportIncrementalModelSynchronization Bool "False"
    Property IncrementalCodeGenAcrossSession Bool "False"
    as these timestamps cause a lot of "noise" in a file based SCM.
    
    While this works fine in Rhapsody itself, the Merge tool does
    not
    correctly handle these settings, after a merge timestamps
    re-appear in
    the model file.

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:                                         *
    * Mentioned properties are overridden on project level. When   *
    * diffMerge compares separate units (e.g. packages) it cannot  *
    * access these overridden values.                              *

Problem conclusion

  • General::SupportIncrementalModelSynchronization and
    General::Property IncrementalCodeGenAcrossSession preferences
    are added to DiffMerge preferences (see their default values in
    factory.prp's DiffMerge subject section). User should set them
    to False (switch off these preferences) to solve the problem.
