  1. in the example below, there is an issue with the second constructor
    generated for A. the constructor just assigns aName to name instead of calling
    setName(aName) as is done in the first constructor. because of that, there is
    no check for duplicate names and the hashmap asByName is not properly updated.
class A {
   1 -- 1 B; 
   unique name;
 class B {

Similarly, if a
state machine is defined for A, then the second constructor also does not set
the initial state.

The above was communicated by email from Gunter Mussbacher

  1. there is another issue with the setName(aName) method. assume that an
    instance has "myName" as the value for the name attribute. if setName(aName)
    is called and the same name, i.e., "myName", is passed into it, setName(aName)
    fails, because it detects that "myName" already exists in the hashmap, but
    does not realize that it belongs to the same instance that is being changed.
    this issue occurs for any unique attribute, i.e., it also occurs for a simple
    model with one class and one unique attribute.
