Error description

  • Summary:
    Code completion generates invalid code with qualifiers
    
    
    Description:
    In the code editing window for Rhapsody in C++, when writing a
    '.' after an instance or a reference to an instance of an
    object, Rhapsody will open up a code completion  window that
    lets us choose an operation/attribute/relation.
    
    The issue is that if we choose a const operation, i.e. with a
    signature like  this:
    void getValue()  const
    
    the  code completion forgets to strip away the const modifier
    which yields invalid  C++ code.
    
    So if we have a class A like this:
    class A
    
    {
    
        void getValue() const { return  5; }
    
    };
    
    
    and try to use the code editing window to use getValue on A, we
    will get the  following invalid code suggestion.
    
    A  instanceOfA;
    instanceOfA.getValue() const
    
    This is not valid in C++. so care should be taken to remove
    const/volatile modifiers when writing out the signature of the
    operation from the code completion window.
