Subject RE: [scxml] Regarding usage of fireEvent method

This seems correct, but it's not possible to debug without knowing the results of your if-statement.
 The problem may be located in there, and be independent of the usage of commons-scxml.

Three ways to debug:

1)  Change first() so that you have:

            public void first() {

2)  AbstractStateMachine has an inner class that defines an SCXML listener (aside: this is
what actually calls your  "public void stateName()" methods).  If you want to debug, you can
create your own listener with appropriate code to intercept transitions/state entries.

3)  In the SCXML, add onentry blocks to determine where you are:

<state ...>
          <log expr="in state x" />

Hope this helps,

Subject: [scxml] Regarding usage of fireEvent method


I'm trying to implement simple FSM in java.

Here is my scxml :-

<scxml xmlns=""
       version="1.0" initialstate="first">

    <state id="first">
            <transition event="event1" target="second" />
            <transition event="event2" target="last" />

    <state id="second">
            <transition event="event3" target="last" />

    <state id="last" final="true" />


Java Implemetation:-

public class FsmTest extends AbstractStateMachine {

            public FsmTest(URL scxmlDocument) {

            public void first() {
                        //Some process...

            public void second() {
                        // Some Process....

            public void last() {


When I try to run this, it was entering into the state "first". But from there no event was
fired and it was not moving to other states.
Please let me know if I was doing something wrong.

Thanks & Regards
