Connector Metadata wizard fails to generate all items from DTD



Connector Metadata wizard fails to generate all items from a master DTD file. Master DTD includes several other DTD file references. Pega generates properties and classes for items included in the master DTD, but not for all referenced DTD files.

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

1. Refer master DTD to several other DTD files.
2. Run Connector and Metadata wizard using the master DTD file.

Root Cause

This is an expected behavior. All the elements have to be in a single DTD, or all the DTDs must be imported separately. There can be several references to external DTDs in a DTD, however Pega does not create properties for all of them. Properties are created only when they are references in the main DTD.


An enhancement request, FDBK-15576, has been created for consideration by Pega Product Management.
