How to prevent transition unless sub-task exists

Ok :-) I was not sure if the API maybe returns an empty collection...

If you want to a prevent particular transition (i.e Tranistion must not be availble to end User), then you will have to write Custom Condition for this and in Condition Class you can check if Subtask is available or not.
