Automatic raise/drop objection with UVM-1.2

Variable uvm_sequence_base::starting_phase is deprecated and replaced by two new methods set_starting_phase and get_starting_phase, which prevent starting_phase from being modified in the middle of a phase. This change is not backward-compatible with UVM 1.1, though variable starting_phase, although deprecated, has not yet been removed from the base class library.

New method uvm_sequence_base::set_automatic_phase_objection causes raise_objection and drop_objection to be called automatically around a sequence, avoiding the need to call raise/drop_objection manually in one common situation.

Lets understand it trough below mentioned example.

  2. Hi Sagar what is the need to do set_starting_phase , we are in run_phase already why do we do set and get starting phase?

    1. uvm_sequence is extended from uvm_object and uvm_object doesn't has phases.
      To inform uvm_sequence about it's starting phase, set_starting_phase is used.
