DiscussionMessage - setRead() method does not work properly



The DiscussionMessage - setRead() does not work properly. The documentation indicates that passing a "true" will mark the discussion read, however passing in "false" will also set the discussion read.

Executing the following code to load the first discussion from the first project in the CaliberRM database:

DiscussionMessage message = session.getProjects()[0].getDiscussion().getAllTopLevelMessages()[0];

  • message.setRead(true); - discussion marked as read.
  • message.setRead(false); - discussion marked as read.


We have marked this as product defect and have submitted a change request to have this problem resolved in a future release.


A workaround does exist. Executing the following code on an already retrieved DiscussionMessage (message) will mark the discussion unread.

CaliberObjectID remoteDiscussionID = message.getDiscussion().getAssociatedObject().getID().toRemoteCaliberObjectID();

session.getRemoteFrameworkManager().removeReadMessages(remoteDiscussionID, new int[] {message.getID().getIDNumber()});
