Trace of Requirements to Design:

Req. No.Location of implementation
No. 1cell class will provide a user friendly editting environment for the user to change the initial conditions of the simulation.
No. 2The TransitionWindow class will provide the user an interface to change the transition parameters for each state. The user can reprogram the transition rules by recoding the following transition classes and the transition's GUI classes.
No. 3The user will edit the way the simulation will be executed through interfaces provided in the cell class.
No. 4The simulation will be saved through the cell class using one of the serialization classes. The transition and state properties will be saved through the TransitionWindow's GUI interface.
No. 5The TransitionA and TransGUIA (and similar classes) will provide a way for the user to easily reprogram the transition rules.
No. 6This functionality will be provided by the TransitionWindow and NewStateWindow classes.
No. 7This functionality will be provided by two buttons on the transition editting window controlled by the TransitionWindow and TWButtonListener classes.
