Class UML 2.5::Transition

Description:

A Transition represents an arc between exactly one source Vertex and exactly one Target vertex (the source and targets may be the same Vertex). It may form part of a compound transition, which takes the StateMachine from one steady State configuration to another, representing the full response of the StateMachine to an occurrence of an Event that triggered it.

Properties:

container : Region (1 1); -- source Transition
effect : Behavior (0 1); -- source Transition

Specifies an optional behavior to be performed when the Transition fires.

Constraints:

No additional constraints.

Operations:

Signature: redefinitionContext.1() : Classifier;
Description: The redefinition context of a Transition is the nearest containing StateMachine.
Expression: result = (let sm : StateMachine = containingStateMachine() in if sm._'context' = null or sm.general->notEmpty() then sm else sm._'context' endif)

Signature: isConsistentWith(redefiningElement : RedefinableElement; ) : Boolean;
Description: The query isConsistentWith() specifies that a redefining Transition is consistent with a redefined Transition provided that the redefining Transition has the following relation to the redefined Transition: A redefining Transition redefines all properties of the corresponding redefined Transition except the source State and the Trigger.
Expression: result = (-- the following is merely a default body; it is expected that the specific form of this constraint will be specified by profiles true)

Signature: containingStateMachine() : StateMachine;
Description: The query containingStateMachine() returns the StateMachine that contains the Transition either directly or transitively.
Expression: result = (container.containingStateMachine())
