Subject [jira] Resolved: (CLI-159) The required property for the child groups of a group should be more consistent
Date Sun, 27 Jul 2008 20:37:31 GMT


Oliver Heger resolved CLI-159.

    Resolution: Fixed

A fix has been applied.

When creating a group its required flag can now be set explicitly (it is true per default,
so the default behavior of groups was not changed by this fix). If set to false and if this
group is used as a child group in another group, the minimum/maximum constraints are not evaluated
unless options of it are present on the command line. Thus the child group can be declared
as optional.

> Currently restrictions defined for a child group can also affect the parent group. For
instance, if for the child group a minimum constraint greater than 0 is set, the parent group
will implicitly become required, even if its minimum is set to 0.
> This is counter-intuitive. It would be more consistent if the minimum and maximum constraints
of the parent group were independent of the settings in the child groups. Then it would be
possible to model constellations like an optional parent group with a child group that has
required elements (i.e. the child group is optional, but if it is present, all required elements
must be provided).
