Subject RE: [scxml-eclipse] User Feedback
Date Thu, 29 Jul 2010 20:28:54 GMT
I've gone through some of the basic functionality of the plug-in and generally found it to
be good.  I have several points of feedback:

1) A small feature request:  Can you display the event name on the diagam like you do for
a condition?  

2) Transition properties list a "Target" field, which is blank, and a "Target Status" field
that is populated with State [statename].  Target and Target Status do not make sense, and
usage of the Target field causes an error.

3) There seems to be no way to have executable content on a transition.  Is this under development?

4)  Seems to crash frequently and give out of memory errors, even while using -Xmx1024m. 
I have to save and restart every minute or two.  

Overall, it seems quite useful and I am grateful for all the hard work put into this.

Hi Chris,

You can find basic guide document here [1]. I think you should export SCXML
document from modeling document which contains tag 'targetConnection'.
