public interface State
extends Namespace, RedefinableElement, Vertex

A representation of the model object ' State '. A state models a situation during which some (usually implicit) invariant condition holds. The states of protocol state machines are exposed to the users of their context classifiers. A protocol state represents an exposed stable situation of its context classifier: when an instance of the classifier is not processing any operation, users of this instance can always know its state configuration.

The following features are supported:

boolean validateDestinationsOrSourcesOfTransitions(org.eclipse.emf.common.util.DiagnosticChain diagnostics,
                                                   java.util.Map<java.lang.Object,java.lang.Object> context)
The connection point references used as destinations/sources of transitions associated with a submachine state must be defined as entry/exit points in the submachine state machine. self.isSubmachineState implies (self.connection->forAll (cp | cp.entry->forAll (p | p.statemachine = self.submachine) and cp.exit->forAll (p | p.statemachine = self.submachine)))

Parameters:
diagnostics - The chain of diagnostics to which problems are to be appended.
context - The cache of context-specific information.

validateSubmachineOrRegions

boolean validateSubmachineOrRegions(org.eclipse.emf.common.util.DiagnosticChain diagnostics,
                                    java.util.Map<java.lang.Object,java.lang.Object> context)
A state is not allowed to have both a submachine and regions. isComposite implies not isSubmachineState

Parameters:
diagnostics - The chain of diagnostics to which problems are to be appended.
context - The cache of context-specific information.

validateCompositeStates

boolean validateCompositeStates(org.eclipse.emf.common.util.DiagnosticChain diagnostics,
                                java.util.Map<java.lang.Object,java.lang.Object> context)
Only composite states can have entry or exit pseudostates defined. connectionPoint->notEmpty() implies isComoposite

Parameters:
diagnostics - The chain of diagnostics to which problems are to be appended.
context - The cache of context-specific information.

validateEntryOrExit

boolean validateEntryOrExit(org.eclipse.emf.common.util.DiagnosticChain diagnostics,
                            java.util.Map<java.lang.Object,java.lang.Object> context)
Only entry or exit pseudostates can serve as connection points. connectionPoint->forAll(cp|cp.kind = #entry or cp.kind = #exit)

Parameters:
diagnostics - The chain of diagnostics to which problems are to be appended.
context - The cache of context-specific information.

redefinitionContext

Classifier redefinitionContext()
The redefinition context of a state is the nearest containing statemachine. result = let sm = containingStateMachine() in if sm.context->isEmpty() or sm.general->notEmpty() then sm else sm.context endif


isRedefinitionContextValid

boolean isRedefinitionContextValid(
State redefined)

This operation redefines the following operations:

The query isRedefinitionContextValid() specifies whether the redefinition contexts of a state are properly related to the redefinition contexts of the specified state to allow this element to redefine the other. The containing region of a redefining state must redefine the containing region of the redefined state. result = true
