           Summary: Unable to Create Kar file from composite
           Product: Kepler
           Version: 1.0.0beta2
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: berkley at nceas.ucsb.edu

A number of problem occur when trying to create a kar file from an existing
composite actor in a workflow.

1) If you select a composite and then execute the 'Create Kar from Actor...'
menu, the first message says "You cannot create a kar file from an instantiated
component. Youmust first make it a class...". Why can't this be done

2)If you then try the 'Convert to Class' menu item, you get the error
Cannot convert an entity to a class definition while it contains ports with
links.' Apparently this means that you must disconnect the links. Again this is
a lot of work for the user!

3)After disconnecting the links, a Class actor will appear and if you then
'Create Kar from Actor...' the proper dialog will appear. However, get 'Error
Building the KAR file: Cannot create transport KAR: null'
