Importing 6.x models in Designer

Hi,

I’m trying to import a 6.5 business process model (created via the Modeler tool) in Designer 7.1.2. But each attempt I’ve tried until now failed…

The ModelImportLog.txt inside Designer lists the following:

[SIZE=2]

[Thu Nov 13 13:08:41 CET 2008] Importing 6.x process models to Process Project “abc” in workspace “/”
[Thu Nov 13 13:08:41 CET 2008] Starting import of 6.x process model “ERE_STEP_model”
[Thu Nov 13 13:08:45 CET 2008] Error during import of Process “ERE_STEP_model”. Please refer to the Error Log for details.

[Thu Nov 13 13:08:45 CET 2008] 6.x Model import completed with Errors
[/size]

When I check the error log inside my Designer workspace, I see the following entries appearing:
!ENTRY org.eclipse.osgi 2 1 2008-11-13 13:10:54.361
!MESSAGE NLS unused message: ToggleRulerVisibility_Label in: com.webmethods.sc.eclipse.graph.ui.messages

Has anyone faced this issue before ? Has anyone succeeded in importing 6.5 models into Designer 7.1.2 (I didn’t had this problem with Designer 7.1.1).

Thanks for your help…

From the error messages, it would seem that the problem is that your 6.5 model has “messages” that are “unused”.

What happens if you create a version of your old model without that step? Does the rest of the model import OK?

Hi Neldev & M,

I am facing also some problems importing 6.x models on designer.
I did not get the same errors but I think this can be related to the fact that some concepts (like XPATH, GLOBAL DATA, etc.) are not available anymore in Designer 7.1.2.

You need to check the list of convertions in Designer doc page 135, and make sure if you are using any of these concepts in your 6.x models.

I am still testing the import of 6.x models to 7.1.2, if I face your issue I will let you know.

Hope my comment will help you solving your issue.
