Interface TransitionInstance

public interface TransitionInstance extends ProcessElementInstance

A transition instance represents an execution token that has just completed a transition (sequence flow in BPMN) or is about to take an outgoing transition. This happens before starting or after leaving an activity. The execution token is not actually executing the activity that this instance points to which is why the corresponding activity instance does not exist.

Transition instances are the result of asynchronous continuations, asyncBefore or asyncAfter.
