Description Kirill Sorokin 2008-03-07 08:22:06 UTC
The scenario is simple and fun. Open a BPEL process, switch to mapper and then close the IDE. Open it again, the said
BPEL process will open in mapper, but both trees will be empty.

I would expect it to open in design view, but even if it's being opened in mapper, it should show the "Unable to show
mapper" label.

Comment 3 Kirill Sorokin 2008-03-29 11:49:46 UTC
I will reopen and lower the priority. As far as I understand the implemented fix only adds an error message for an empty
mapper context, but does not cover the root cause of the issue -- a BPEL document should not open in the mapper view in
the first place.
Comment 4 Vitaly Bychkov 2008-03-29 16:58:23 UTC
The requested behavior is in inconsitence with netbeans and bpel editor behavior in general cases.

First of all now we show bpel mapper for all elements but in case an element doesn't require mapper 
it shows correspondent message. It's done by design and from my point of view it is better behavior.

From netbeans point: in case one close IDE with some opened TCs on the next start these TCs will be restored.

Please feel free to file an enhancement on general behavior if you would like to change it.
Comment 5 Kirill Sorokin 2008-04-06 03:31:36 UTC
Okay, reopening as an enhancement request (priority was pumped-up a bit). 

Bottom line: if I close the IDE with a BPEL process opened in the mapper view, I would not expect it to be opened with
an empty mapper (even with the error message). 

The optimal behavior would be to restore the context (i.e. selection) in the same state as it was before closing the
IDE, but if that is difficult to achieve, opening the process in the design view would be quite sufficient. The
"NetBeans point" pitch is completely inappropriate here, as the mapper view is not used according to the "NetBeans
point" in the first place: all other NetBeans multi-view elements (to my best knowledge) act without a context.

Alexey, please investigate how much efforts will it take.
