Subject [scxml] update datamodel from Java

I've lately worked on integrating SCXML with Javascript and EMF
(Eclipse Modeling Framework). One use case is reacting to changes in an EMF
object graph (not SCXML's native datamodel). With this integration you 
can use
Javascript in events, conditions and actions. When used in an event, the 
accesses to the EMF objects are recorded, and if the read parts are changed,
a corresponding event is sent to the machine. This mechanism is useful for
both an application's business logic and user interface, and is fairly 
integrated with SCXML.
