Error description

  • IBM Rational Software Architect RealTime Edition (RSA RTE) with
    the IBM Rational ClearTeam Explorer (CTE) plugin prompts with a
    message similar to the following:
    
    ---
    The model Blank Package has been saved on the file system.  Do
    you want to load the changes?
    ---
    
    This occurs when attempting to checkin within a dynamic view if
    the 'Refresh automatically' preference is enabled.
    
    
    Steps to reproduce the issue:
    
    1) In RSA RTE (with CTE plugin), enable the 'Refresh
    automatically' option from Preferences ? General ? Workspace.
    
    2) Perform a checkin within a dynamic view context.  The 'Do you
    want to load the changes?' prompt will appear.
    
    
    Workaround:
    
    The issue can temporarily be resolved by enabling the 'Preserve
    modification time ...' option found under Preferences ? Team ?
    IBM Rational ClearTeam Explorer ? ClearTeam Explorer.  However
    this effect will be lost upon a restart of the GUI until the
    preference is toggled off and back on again.
