If you want the onexit and onentry to execute, then specify the parent
state as the target state to the transition (via the "target"
attribute of the <transition> element). Such a transition is referred
to as a self transition.

If you do not want the onexit and onentry to execute, then leave the
transition targetless (do not specify a "target" attribute on the
<transition> element). Such a transition is referred to as a stay
transition.
