public class BadPropertyException
extends RuntimeException
implements MAJException

Thrown when an optional property should be omitted in the current context. In the AAF specification, the cases when this can occur are labelled as Conditional Rules. This is different from a PropertyNotPresentException which is thrown when an attempt is made to read an optional property that is currently omitted.

For example, according to conditional rule 1 of the event class, its a position property shall only be present when it is in an event mob slot. Any attempt to set or get this property in another context should result in this exception being thrown.

Equivalent C result code: AAFRESULT_BAD_PROP 0x801200CB
