    public class Warrant
    extends AbstractNamedBean
    implements ThrottleListener, java.beans.PropertyChangeListener
    An Warrant contains the operating permissions and directives needed for a train to proceed from an Origin to a Destination. There are three modes that a Warrant may execute;

    MODE_LEARN - Warrant is created or edited in WarrantFrame and then launched from WarrantFrame who records throttle commands from "_student" throttle. Warrant fires PropertyChanges for WarrantFrame to record when blocks are entered. "_engineer" thread is null.

    MODE_RUN - Warrant may be launched from several places. An array of BlockOrders, _savedOrders, and corresponding _throttleCommands allow an "_engineer" thread to execute the throttle commands. The blockOrders establish the route for the Warrant to acquire and reserve OBlocks. The Warrant monitors block activity (entrances and exits, signals, rogue occupancy etc) and modifies speed as needed.

    MODE_MANUAL - Warrant may be launched from several places. The Warrant to acquires and reserves the route from the array of BlockOrders. Throttle commands are done by a human operator. "_engineer" and "_throttleCommands" are not used. Warrant monitors block activity but does not set _stoppingBlock or _protectSignal since it cannot control speed. It does attempt to realign the route as needed, but can be thwarted.

    Version 1.11 - remove setting of SignalHeads

        Allocate as many blocks as possible from the start of the warrant. The first block must be allocated and all blocks of the route must be in service. Otherwise partial success is OK. Installs listeners for the entire route. If occupation by another train is detected, a message will be posted to the Warrant List Window.

        Set the route paths and turnouts for the warrant. Only the first block must be allocated and have its path set. Partial success is OK. A message of the first subsequent block that fails allocation or path setting is written to a field that is displayed in the Warrant List window. When running with block detection, occupation by another train or block 'not in use' or Signals denying movement are reasons for such a message, otherwise only allocation to another warrant prevents total success. Note that warrants sharing their clearance only allocate and set paths one block in advance.
        show - If true allocateRoute returns messages for display.
        orders - BlockOrder list of route. If null, use permanent warrant copy.

      • dispose

        public void dispose()
        Description copied from class: AbstractNamedBean
        Deactivate this object, so that it releases as many resources as possible and no longer effects others.

        For example, if this object has listeners, after a call to this method it should no longer notify those listeners. Any native or system-wide resources it maintains should be released, including threads, files, etc.

        It is an error to invoke any other methods on this object once dispose() has been called. Note, however, that there is no guarantee about behavior in that case.

        Afterwards, references to this object may still exist elsewhere, preventing its garbage collection. But it's formally dead, and shouldn't be keeping any other objects alive. Therefore, this method should null out any references to other objects that this NamedBean contained.
