Class SampleAutomaton

  • All Implemented Interfaces:

    public class SampleAutomaton
    extends AbstractAutomaton
    This sample Automaton watches a Sensor, and adjusts the state of a Turnout so that it matches the Sensor's state.

    The sensor and turnout id's are hardcoded, as this is an example of just the Automaton function. Adding a GUI to configure these would be straight-forward. The values could be passed via the constructor, or the constructor (which can run in any required thread) could invoke a dialog.

    For test purposes, one of these objects can be created and invoked by a SampleAutomatonAction.
