Description johnny 2006-11-19 12:36:48 UTC
Version:           1.5.5 (using KDE KDE 3.5.5)
Installed from:    Compiled From Sources
Compiler:          doesn't apply doesn't apply
OS:                Linux

The environment is quite simple: I was working on a component diagram, at from a certain point on, saving the diagram would fail reloading it later.

Let me explain better:

- I've got my architecture.xmi of about 50kb, with a single component diagram.
- I open it, hit "save as" without any action, and save it as arch2.xmi, and it turns out  it is about 30kb.
- If I open back arch2.xmi the diagram is gone, but there are still the classes and interface I created, on the left pane.

I really would need to go on with this diagram, I hope it will be recoverable after the bug is fixed.
If you need the offending file drop me an email address, I will send it only privately to umbrello developers, not in the bugzilla system.

Thank you in advance.

Now i'm using umbrello 1.5.52 - current svn kde 3.5 branch.

It can save and open the component diagram, BUT it has some *serious* problems about handling artifacts objects - they simply disappear causing inconsistancy in the xmi file.

If you manage to fix this bug I can verify it with svn.

Thank you, regards

Comment 3 johnny 2006-11-19 17:02:35 UTC
I applied the patch and recompiled - the problem persists.

I opened my diagram and dragged the disappeared artifacts inside the diagram. After save and reload they are still gone.

But wait.. if I create new artifacts they seem to resist after save/reload.

I think that newer versions of umbrello should try to fix errors introduced by previous versions. I don't expect it to recover a broken .xmi file, but if I open a partly corrupted .xmi and fix the things by hand, then save, it should clean up the .xmi file for later usage.

Thanks regards

SVN commit 606237 by okellogg:

acceptDrag(): Accept srcType=lvt_{Artifact,Component_Diagram} also if dstType
 is lvt_Deployment_Folder.
How to use this fix: Drag the artifacts from the Deployment View folder to the
 Component View folder in the list view.
