UML14 — Why is a StateMachine's top a State instead of a CompositeState?

  • Key: UML14-46
  • Legacy Issue Number: 3569
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: MotionPoint ( Eugenio Alvarez)
  • Summary:

    Every StateMachine must have one top State. However, there is an
    OCL constraint that says that the top State must be a CompositeState
    (Semantics 2.12.3 Well-FormednessRules, StateMachine Section, rule [2], p
    2-141). So, why not make the top relationship from StateMachine to
    CompositeState instead of from StateMachine to State. The constraint can
    then be eliminated.
