Composition of Use Cases Using Synchronization and Model Checking [chapter]

R. Mizouni, A. Salah, S. Kolahi, R. Dssouli
2006 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
An assignment provides the join points and the composition operators that will be taken into account during the composition. These join points are, in fact, determined through a model checking step.  ...  The challenge is to find both the adequate model that fits the needs of the analyst and a formal composition mechanism which helps the generation of the expected behavior.  ...  The approach consists of three steps, as shown in Fig Fig. 1 : use cases and assignments specification step, a model checking step, and a composition step.  ...

Sandeep Patil, Dmitrii Drozdov, Victor Dubinin, Valeriy Vyatkin
2015 IFIP Advances in Information and Communication Technology  
Besides, closed-loop plant controller modelling and synchronization of transitions in the SMV (input language for symbolic model checking) model aim at complexity reduction.  ...  In addition, bounded model-checking is applied, which helps to achieve results in cases when the state space is too high.  ...  In this case, the schema shown in A composite FB model contains buffer SMV variables and it should contain buffer controllers.  ...

Compatibility Checking for Asynchronously Communicating Software [chapter]

Meriem Ouederni, Gwen Salaün, Tevfik Bultan
2014 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Using the synchronizability property, we can check the compatibility of systems with unbounded message buffers by analyzing only a finite part of their behavior.  ...  However, checking compatibility for systems communicating asynchronously is an undecidable problem, and asynchronous communication is a common interaction mechanism used in building software systems.  ...  Finally, we use the LOTOS parallel composition for specifying the synchronous and asynchronous composition of peers.  ...

Compositional Test Generation of Industrial Synchronous Systems [article]

Daisuke Ishii, Takashi Tomita, Kenji Onishi, Toshiaki Aoki
2021 arXiv   pre-print
Synchronous systems provide a basic model of embedded systems and industrial systems are modeled as Simulink diagrams and/or Lustre programs.  ...  We regard a test case as a counterexample in safety verification, and represent a test generation process as a deductive proof tree built with dedicated inference rules; we conduct both spatial- and temporal-compositional  ...  Model checking using an SMT solver. Given a node N n and a safety e@k, bounded model checking (BMC) [4] checks whether N n |= N [e@k] using an offthe-shelf SMT solver.  ...

Safe Composition in Middleware for the Internet of Things

Ines Sarray, Annie Ressouche, Daniel Gaffé, Jean-Yves Tigli, Stéphane Lavirotte
2015 Proceedings of the 2nd Workshop on Middleware for Context-Aware Applications in the IoT - M4IoT 2015  
The whole approach and its associated tools rely on the synchronous paradigm, since it has a wellestablished formal foundation allowing automatic proofs, and interface with most model-checkers.  ...  IoT environments are dynamic; our solution ensures adaptation to its changes by using new generated constraint components and inhibitors to deal with the appearance and disappearance of devices/applications  ...  In our middleware, we use synchronous models to facilitate the study and the validation of new composition mechanisms between applications at runtime.  ...

2016 IEEE Transactions on Services Computing  
Still, this has been recently addressed using symbolic models [17].  ...  Other formal properties and composition issues also need to be verified for choreographies but are hardly tackled in the literature.  ...  If the choreography is synchronizable, realizability checking is run, by checking the equivalence between the synchronous composition of the peers and the choreography model.  ...
