Error description

  • Headline:
    
    Using API call 'getDiagramOfSelectedElement()' in Eclipse IDE
    that also runs the Rhapsody Platform integration, focus is lost
    from the selected element.
    
    Abstract:
    
    Attempts to use the API call 'getDiagramOfSelectedElement()' for
    an element selected in the diagram on Eclipse the Rhapsody
    Platform integration, results in focus being lost from the
    selected element and in turn lead to null pointer exception.
    
    Description:
    
    When using the API call 'getDiagramOfSelectedElement()' for an
    element selected in the diagram on Eclipse's platform
    integration mode and that also runs the Java API code, it is
    expected that the diagram containing the element is returned.
    However this is not the case; while running the code (in Java
    Perspective) focus is lost from the selected element (in
    Rhapsody Modeling Perspective) and it results in a null pointer
    exception.
    
    Workaround:
    
    There is no known workaround at this time.
