Re: [scxml] Possible inconsistency in SCXML specification Appendix E1

  I think that you are right. We will revise this example in the next draft.

Subject: [scxml] Possible inconsistency in SCXML specification Appendix E1


I think I may have found a place in Example Main.scxml, Section E.1 of 
the latest SCXML specification:

<state id="Test3Sub1">
           <log expr="'Inside Test3Sub1...'"/>
           <!-- Send our self an event in 5s -->
           <send event="'Timer'"  delay="'5s'"/>

If I understand the specification correctly, the send element should be 
written as follows:

<send event="Timer"  delay="5s"/>


<send eventexpr="'Timer'"  delayexpr="'5s'"/>

As "'Timer'" and "'5s'" are string expressions that must be evaluated in 
order for their values to be legal.

Please let me know if I am correct in this, or if I have misunderstood
