New in Version V6.00

Changes introduced in Rpy_C_Win_VS13_PC_RC_TC_TD_V6.00 which was released on 2014-09-15.

Fixed Issues

Identifier Description
Case 2679 Improved V6 Documentation
Case 2684 Improved RXF documentation
Case 2704 In many cases the code generation message — Do you want to Roundtrip — was coming up every time code needs to be generated. This is now solved.
Case 2709 Solved problem with FIRE, FIRE_S, FIRE_ISR and FIRE_ISR_S macros for sending events.
Case 2713 Corrected handling of null transitions by solving problem with the Null_id identifier
Case 2718 Solved problem which required active classes to specify stack size, message queue size and priority. Now also using the default values from WSTRTOS.h is supported.
Case 2720 Embedded UML Target Debugger had problems querying attributes from the target in combination with an RTOS.
Case 2745 Corrected define WST_CFG_HIGHWATERMARKS in Rhapsody default Debug configuration settings
Case 2803 Using event generation macro FIRE_ISR_S resulted in an error like struct has no field wst_event
Case 3143 RXFComponent Stereotype now overrides Include Statement Properties for the RiCContainers to support working without oxf subdirectory (flat RXF structure). WST.h additionally includes RiCTypes.h, RiCCollection.h, RiCList.h und RiCMap.h.
Case 3145 Defining RiCNotifyToOutput() as empty macro to solve build problems when Rhapsody generates it.
Case 3155 Corrected include file name for ports support (RiCDefaultReactivePort).
Case 3156 Correctly mapping WST_EVT_setDeleteAfterConsume() in WSTModelling.h.
Case 3157 Return value of operation IRiCReactive_gen() for ports support now initializes return value in any case.
Case 3158 Embedded UML Target Debugger now displays events which have been sent via ports correctly (a problem with undefined sender of the events was solved)
Case 3162 Fixed a macro definition Problem in WSTModelling.h. WSTGEN_PORT is now available.
Case 3178 The WST_MSQ_put() function called the error handler with code WST_ERR_EVENT_QUEUE_FULL, even if there was still space for one more event in the message queue.
Case 3235 Added a two macros. OMSETPARAMS to set event parameter. IS_COMPLETED for state charts with termination state.
Case 3237 Protecting timeout queues via mutexes against concurrent task race conditions.
Case 3263 Now the WST_TMM_itsTimeout array is independent of #define WST_CFG_HIGHWATERMARKS
Case 3265 Fixed a problem of race conditions while putting messages into the message queue
Case 3454 Sub classes of active classes now using the same task as the parent class.
Case 3486 Triggered operations return value macro CREPLY is fixed.
Case 3733 Added a sleep function to WST_OSW.c. If the system is stopped by the UML Target Debugger only the target Debugger Task is active.
Case 3784 Now the Target Debugger can be used with the TestConducter without using the stereotype LiveAnimation in the component.
Case 3788 Fixed a problem with RiCCollection_add. The realloc command was called with wrong parameters.
Case 3791 Removed the MessageQueue size attribute in the Class WST_TSK. Same data is stored inside WST_MSQ.
Case 3813 Fixed the WST_MEM_getMemory() operation. WST_FORCE_ALLOC_FAILED or _DEBUG will cause the calling the error handler independent of the define NO_MALLOC or WST_FORCE_ALLOC_FAILED.
Case 3861 WSTDeployer now handles relative paths to the destination IDE project (beginning with “.\”, relative to the generated source files directory) correctly.
Case 3874 Memory pool usage counter was not counted properly (missing decrement).
Case 3993 The UML Target Debugger is now available for CPP RXF with all features
Case 4002 WST_MEM had incorrect WST_MEM_returnMemory() argument “onlyStatic==FALSE” handling
Case 4011 Make the actual RXF compatible with old Frameworks which uses CGEN_S and CGEN_ISR_S in user code.

New Features

Identifier Description
Case 1319 The size of WST_FSM and WST_TSK structure is send to the target debugger while runtime. Its now more dynamic.
Case 2444 Setup is now adding a tools menu entry to Rhapsody to make it possible to start the IDE project, which is associated with the currently active component in the model.
Case 2506 Implemented linked list container class WST_CON_LST to allow ordered one-to-many relations in UML models.
Case 2560 When creating a new Rhapsody project it is now possible to select the product specific profile as project type and select the WSTProfile as project settings both directly in the new project dialog. On earlier versions only one of these profiles could be selected as project type.
Case 2714 Implemented macros to support easier initializing and sending of static events from an array. This mechanism is usually necessary when sending events from an ISR. The new macros are WST_EVT_initStaticEventArray( EVENT, EVENT_ARRAY, SIZE ), WST_EVT_initStaticEventArray_S( SOURCE, EVENT, EVENT_ARRAY, SIZE ) and FIRE_ISR_ARRAY( DESTINATION, EVENT_ARRAY, INDEX, SIZE ).
Case 2875 Included MISRA2004 profile in installation
Case 2918 Implemented limited support for UML Ports
Case 3541 RXF products now include a document Doc/BillOfMaterial.html with svn revisions and MD5 hashes for each source file.
Case 3645 The protocol for the Embedded UML Target Debugger is improved. New version is 2.6.0
Case 3985 WST_RXF_executeOnce() now allows to handle a given number of events with each call (instead of just one event per call). Existing user code calling WST_RXF_executeOnce() needs to be updated by adding a parameter (1).
Case 4062 Synchronized Rhapsody Modeling Interface.

Changes in Behavior

Identifier Description
Case 2330 All RXF files now also use the WST.h include file instead of including a list of individual RXF header files. Also the class structure definitions are now consistently named with the _t postfix and typedefed without the _t postfix. Parameter lists make use of e.g. the typedefed “WST_FSM” instead of “struct WST_FSM_t”.
Case 2392 Added possibility to force WST error handler calls on memory allocation problems also in Release buildsets via defines WST_FORCE_ERRORHANDLER_IN_RELEASE or WST_FORCE_ALLOC_FAILED
Case 2433 Under Windows 7 the setup will propose a Willert installation path located under the user files directory to make sure read and write access is possible.
Case 2685 WSTDeployer now saves the IDE destination path in relation to the generated sources path of the active configuration. The deepest three directory levels are used as a key to identify model, component and configuration the IDE project is related to. For details please read the WSTDeployer Configuration documentation.
Case 3002 Added support for RxfExcludeByFilenameOnly property in WSTDeployer, which defaults to true. That makes sure only filenames of RXF excluded files are compared (ignoring cases) and allows easier exclusion of RXF files from Deployment.
Case 3094 Removed some overhead in the RXF which is not really needed in V6 of the RXF anymore. This does not reduce functionality, but gives a better overview when looking at RXF source files. E.g. WSTEpilog.c, WSTEpilog.h, WSTProlog.c and WSTProlog.h have been removed.
Case 3163 Removed WSTRXFLib class from RXF, as the RXF_Init can also be used if the RXF is only used as subpart of a system.
Case 3166 Removed check for define WST_RXF_INIT_IS_MAPPED, as WST_RXF_Init() can also be overridden by user specific WST_RXF.c file and adding WST_RXF.c to WSTDeployerExcludedFiles.txt, if a different RXF implementation should be used.
Case 3222 Now the RTOS message queue can differ between events from ISR and events from normal context.
Case 3268 Removed WSTStartBehaviorEvent.c/.h. The WSTStartBehaviorEvent is now represented as a normal WST_EVT.
Case 3305 Added the Stereotype Task to the RXF profile to create tasks with static stacks and message queues.
Case 3409 Changed the Monitor helper AWK file. Now no additional lines are added to the generated code. This is needed to use the Framework with BTC TestConductor.
Case 3425 Setting property RemoteHost to generate fixed dummy host name “WST_RXF”, which gets removed by the preprocessor during compile time.
Case 3454 Added the Macro FIRE_ISR
Case 3533 Removed unnecessary Include of ctype.h in WSTTypes.h.
Case 3817 Define WST_MAX_EVENTS and Property WSTMaxEvents are no longer available in the RXF. The event list is dynamic and there is no specific size limit which needs to be set via properties.
Case 3818 Rhapsody generated code may access event IDs directly, added mapping from lId to id in WSTModelling.h
Case 3819 Renamed define STATIC in Rhapsody container classes (RC) into RIC_STATIC to prevent name clashes with user or RTOS code.
Case 3822 Documented WST_DEFAULT_MAX_NULL_STEPS define to configure NULL-transition loop detection.
Case 3823 Documented WST_MS_PER_TICK Define
Case 3835 Setting default Rhapsody edition in Rhapsody.ini during RXF Setup to Architect to better support Willert OEM Rhapsody users (e.g. when launching Rhapsody inside Eclipse).
Case 3867 The operation WST_MEM_returnMemory has now a second argument “WSTBoolean onlyStatic”. If this attribute is true free will not be called if the given memory pointer is not part of the static memory pools.
Case 3882 RXF Class structure typedefs are now all located inside WST.h
Case 4030 Settung property C_CG::Ports::SupportMulticast to “Never” in order to allow Rapid-Ports usage with manual multiplicity access
