public final class MutualExclusionPolicyModelGroup
extends ValuePolicyModelGroup<java.lang.Boolean>

A group that ensures that only one boolean model in the group is set to true at the same time. This class is declared final because it represents a particular defined semantics, no more and no less. This allows controllers to make assumptions about models with only this listener, and offload mutual exclusion to client that have this capability built in. The current implementation will only update the selected model for models that are already a part of the group.
