RSART- can't multiselect, run uml->c++ transform in Project Explorer

multi-select action is very common paradigm for Eclipse, e.g. build/clean/open/close. think the transform s/be here to. currently seems to only run one/first of selected .tcs (from Model/transformations) when you right click run uml->C++ transform.

people frequently forget to update all flavors of their .tcs. this would save a step in keeping things maintained.

if you go to Model/Transformation Configurations you can multiselect, build all, confirm, and it UML->C++ all selected, then do a CDT build of the results. Similar to what is desired but not the same thing.

Given the capability in one area, it should be capable in the other area as well.

    IBM told us: But a proposal from development is to consider solving this workflow by instead introducing a checkbox in the "Build transformations" dialog which allows to use the regular Build command, but skip everything after code generation. Benefits: Supports multi-selection, captures printout in the UML Development console, works also from context menu of TC shown under the Transformation Configurations virtual folder.

    This sounds good to us.

    I tested and it seems the problem here is that the context menu command Transform - Run UML to RealTime C++ is enabled when multiple TCs are selected, but still the command only runs on one of the selected TCs. It should run on all selected TCs.
