Error description

  • With RiA, the RecordTypeName property specifies the name of the
    class record type. If this is not set, Rational Rhapsody uses
    class_name?_t. Default = Empty string Current it's possible to
    add a macro inside this property (RecordTypeName) to have the
    type changed from default ?_t? to ?_Type?, as a workaround -
    e.g: [[Name]]_Type
    
    On setting Macro for property affects RE with RiA. While doing
    reverse engineer, the tagged record type is used to create the
    class record type in Rhapsody. The class types are not present
    anymore in the browser. They are defined in properties.
    
    Problem description:
    - Create Class1 (a simple class without attributes and
    functions, no type definitions)
    
    - Generate the code (in the code have a type Class1_Type in the
    package Class1)
    
    - Delete the class from the model
    
    - Start reverse engineering
    
     The result in the model is:
    
      - A Class1 in the model
    
      - In Class1 a Type Class1_Type which was not there before
    Reverse engineering must match the Class1_Type to the Class1.
    
    Class1_Type is not a separate element.
