Error description

  • Popup warnings like: 'The license key for this product will
    expire in...' breaks automatic script.
    
    It happens at the end of the year within 2 weeks of the license
    expiration date.
    
    The IBM Rational License Key Administrator has a setting to
    'Display Expiration Warnings'
    Deselecting that setting should disable the license popup
    warning, but it does NOT work to stop the popup warning.
    
    However, it is not limited to just popup warnings for the
    licenses. Any popup warning causes the automatic script to
    break.
    
    In general, any popup windows while using Rational Software
    Architect (RSA) in silent mode breaks the automatic script. For
    example: doing automatic builds using a script.
    
    This issue is important when using RSA in silent mode. That
    means not starting the RSA GUI, but instead using a script to
    use RSA. This is important for automatic script use.

    expire in..." breaks automatic script.
    
    It happens at the end of the year within 2 weeks of the
    license expiration date.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The license checking plugin tries to display warning
    messages as dialogs. This breaks command line build when
    DISPLAY environment variable is not set on linux. Modified
    this behavior to just log warnings and not display dialogs.
    Errors would still behave the same way
