Traffic Light (Java) with SCTUnit

This example demonstrates how a SCTUnit Test File could look like and how you can execute them to verify that a statechart model works correctly.

The statechart


This project builds up on the Traffic Light example for Java. The SCTUnit File in the folder 'tests' tests the function and logic of the statechart. To run the Test, right click on the File and Select 'Run As -> SCT Unit'. The JUnit view will open and you will see the results. In the package 'traffic.light.tests' in the folder 'src-gen' is also a JUnit Test which was generated from the SCTUnit File.

To sum up the statechart model: There are two traffic lights: one for the traffic on the street, and one for pedestrians who want to cross the street. They can push a button to request their traffic light to turn green, which activates a blinking wait-light first. The street's traffic light then goes through the standard procedure, turning on the yellow light, followed by the red light, allowing the pedestrians to cross safely. After some time, the pedestrians' traffic light turns red again, and the cars are allowed to pass until the next request is made by a pedestrian.

Additionally, the traffic light can be switched off completely. This turns the yellow lights into a blinking mode, signaling that the traffic light is indeed switched off and that the street should be crossed in a careful manner.

Known issues

  1. The example requires a JAVA 8 JDK.
  2. When you installed the example, Eclipse may show errors on the project. This is likely due to a missing configuration of the JDK. In this case select 'Properties' from the project's context menu and set the correct JDK in 'Java Build Path'. You will find further help in the 'Java development user guide' section of the Eclipse help.
  3. For the generated Java Tests you will need JUnit 4 (simply configure in 'Java Build Path' and add the JUnit library to the build path) and Mockito 2.0.2 (download it and add it as library to the Java Build Path, by right-click on the project -> Properties -> Java Build Path -> Libraries -> Add External JARs...)
