Property creation blocked due to case sensitivity



An error occurs when trying to create a local property for a class.

Error Messages

Definition required to conform to Work-.AccountNumber instance created 20160113T060010.259 GMT.
A case mismatch has been found for this property: 'accountNumber' doesn't match 'AccountNumber'

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Create a property, for example AccountNumber, in @baseclass.
  2. Try to create another property at any descendent class with different spelling, for example accountNumber.

Root Cause

According to the Pega 7.2 help topic given below, creation of an identical property with different case is not allowed.


This is an expected behavior.
