Problem:

Importing a DefineIT .xmi file into CaliberRDM fail generates the error 'spi.exceptions.PersistenceFailureException javax.persistence.PersistenceException: Attempt to store value'' in column 'DESCRIPTION' that has maximum length of 4000. Please correct your data!'

Resolution:

This error will be thrown if you are trying to import a DefineIT project that contains an object (Step, Scenario, Decision) with a description field larger than 4000 characters. Please note this field contains underlying HTML, which is not visible until exported and will be included in the 4000 character limit. To resolve this problem you will need to shorten the length of the description field within DefineIT before exporting to a .xmi file.
