Support for oneOf in Swagger definitions

We need support for oneOf construct in Swagger definitions. (This is similar to the XSD choice construct.) This should allow us to annotate the model for oneOf during modeling and Swagger transformation should appropriately generate oneOf in the y...

RSA-RTE: Deleting an element from the model does not give option to delete it from TCs

In the sample model, delete ?Class1? from the model. This action does not delete it from any TC in the workspace. This is unexpected. I would at least expect a popup that asks me whether I want to remove the class from TCs. After all, any dependen...

RSA-RTE: Open detatched Editor WIndow on double click transition

Propose to open a detached editor window when double clicking on a transition / operation (single click now is Code view).

RSA-RTE: Enable searching in Parent / Derived tree

RSA-RTE 9.1.1. CP2: In Rose-RT it was possible to search using the scope in an inheritance view (Parent and or derived tree). This was used heavily by a number of engineers. (See attached Rose-RT search dialog). In RSA-RTE the thing which comes th...

Save As Image File... PDF support dropped

Prior versions of RSA supported the PDF output format when invoking File->Save As Image File... from a right mouse click within a diagram. This output format has been discontinued. We'd like it back!

Let Help - Search find documentation available on DeveloperWorks

Most of the documentation of RSARTE is nowadays found on the DeveloperWorks wiki. So it would be nice to extend Help - Search with a scope for searching this wiki. It can work similar to how can be chosen as a scope when searching for ...

Use state machine hierarchy in compare/merge view for RSA-RTE

Change proposal: Use the state machine hierarchy, i.e. composite states, as grouping option in the compare/merge view in RSA-RTE. The changes of different state levels within the same state machine are currently mixed up in the compare dialog. The...

Have output from xcompare 'Save list of changes' available through command line.

While testing the 'compare' feature of cmcmdline.jar, we have seen 2 issues.* Output is very minimalistic (only a count)* compare needs ancestor (xcompare does not) It would be great if we could just provide -left and -right and get output like: x...

RSA-RTE: Modeling associations: Multiplicity of composite association returns pointer by default

Model an association in the form of a pointer in a class diagram. Since this is a pointer, it makes sense to set the default value to 0. When modeling a "Composition Association" in a class diagram, the multiplicity of the target defaults to "0..1...

RSA-RTE/Modeling associations: Default value cannot be set from properties view

Model an association in the form of a pointer in a class diagram. Since this is a pointer, it makes sense to set the default value to 0. Setting the default value cannot be done from the properties view of the association. It can only be done from...
