You are right, this was not a good solution
as the appended integers could not be guaranteed to always create a unique
names that never change. We therefore implemented a new solution
now that you should see in newer integration builds on EPF. The published
files now look like this:
We create a hash code based on the GUID
and append it to the name. Now all elements get this little appendix.
This compromise results into not too long names, but still ensures
uniqueness and stability of the names.
If you wonder about migration of image
maps and other files you guys might have updated recently: as long as you
now include the guid attribute in your links the migration to the new should

|RE: Question about EPF Composer HTML
Peter, can you shed some light
on the generated HTML file names.
The issue is the ability of other
tools/webpages to link to generated process pages. If the html file
names are not pre-determined, and constant, then these other links will
break if the process is updated and/or the website if regenerated.
Perhaps GUIDs were a better solution,
as these are constant unless the underlying process element is deleted/recreated.

Chris, I'm not sure. I confess I had seen this result before, but couldn't
realize what behavior led to that.
I think this might be a good question for the tool team, but they will
eventually ask us to reproduce steps - not sure how though.

|Question about EPF Composer HTML generation|
I just noticed that the names of the generated HTML files have changed.
Some of them have a "-x", where "x" is an integer appended
to the name.
For example, if I have a method element called "element_A.xmi"
there is a generated page called "element_A-2.html". Do
you have any idea when and why this was changed? Under what conditions
are the integers appended?
The elements used to have a GUID in the filename and that was removed,
so I can understand adding a incrementing number to get unique file names,
but in many cases the appended integer is present even if the file name
is already unique.
Any insight would be appreciated.
