This release fixes some regressions introduced in the refactoring work of the previous 1.2.0 release. We have also added support for Graphiti versions 0.12 and 0.13 for compatibility with Mars service releases. Here is a list of the bugzilla reports that have been addressed by this release:

  • RH Bug 1189454 - Multiple-Instance Loop Characteristics and process variables are not linked. Added a Java typespec field editor to support parameterized Java types.

This release has also included the following enhancements:

  • Target Runtime code refactoring (see Bug 471357 and Bug 383962). The goal of this was to remove static variables which caused problems in some cases when identifying the correct Target Runtime.
  • Added support for selectively serializing FormalExpression.body and Documentation.text as CDATA instead of attribute values.
  • String externalization and cleanup (see Bug 474434).
  • Added support for Graphiti 0.13.0.
  • The conversions of Process and Collaboration Diagrams has been fixed. When a diagram contains only a single Process and a new Pool (a.k.a. "Participant") is added, the diagram is converted to a Collaboration Diagram containing the new Participant and a "default" Participant that references the original Process.

    Conversely, if a Collaboration contains only two Participants and one is removed, the diagram is converted to a Process Diagram containing the Process of the remaining Participant. See Bug 465939.
