Plug-ins ignore file set by the auto-detect file format function

This happens in the ReporterMapImporter and in the RawDataFlatFileImporter. I don't know if it happens in other plug-ins as well. I guess the problem is in the web client which forgets the file that was selected in the auto-detection step.

  1. Create an array design and select file 'A' as the reporter map file. This file can be any file that doesn't match a configured file format.
  2. Click on the "Import" button and select auto-detect. The 'A' file should already be selected in the 'File' field.
  3. Click on 'Browse...' and select file 'B' instead. This file should match a defined reporter map file format.
  4. Click on 'Next...'
  5. If a file format is found a new page showing more parameters is displayed
  6. Select 'Reporter map file' parameter.
  7. The value of this parameter is the 'A' file.


  1. Click on 'Browse...' in the last window and select the 'B' file again.
  2. Don't select file 'A' as a reporter map file in step 1 above.

The reason for this behavior is that if a file is already selected as the 'reporter map' file the plug-in sets this file as the default value. This has higher precedence than the most recently used file in CurrentContext which is where the auto-detected file is stored. I guess the priority order should be:

  1. The auto-detected file
  2. The default value
  3. Any other recently used file

The problem is entirely in the web client code.
