D. Amyot, F. Bordeleau, R. J. A. Buhr, L. Logrippo
1996 IFIP Advances in Information and Communication Technology  
Tools used include LOLA for analysis and design testing, LMC for checking temporal logic properties, and GOAL for checking reachability of actions.  ...  The ISO standard FDT (Formal Description Technique) LOTOS (ISO, 1988) is used in this project for formal analysis and validation purpose. The reasons for choosing LOTOS are multiple.  ...  Goal-oriented execution ) is a LOTOS execution mode that directs execution to see whether certain action sequences can be achieved.  ...

Optimization of Business Processes in Service Oriented Architecture

Andrzej Ratkowski, Krzysztof Sacha, Andrzej Zalewski
2012 2012 IEEE 16th International Enterprise Distributed Object Computing Conference Workshops  
This paper describes a method for the implementation and optimization of business processes in a service oriented architecture (SOA).  ...  When the design goals have been reached, the transformed BPEL process can be executed on a target SOA environment using a BPEL engine.  ...  Our goal is to speed-up execution of the process in Fig. 2 . One way to reach the goal is by parallelizing the execution of ass1 and <if> activities.  ...

The lotos model of a fault protected system and its verification using a petri net based approach [chapter]

Michel Barbeau, Gregor Bochmann
1992 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Having introduced a novel Petri net based method for the verification of Lotes specifications [Barb 90a], this paper demonstrates its practical interest.  ...  In contrast to finite automata based methods, our method can analyse Lotos systems with unbounded state spaces. Our method is founded on a Place/Transitionnet Lotos semantics.  ...  The authors thank the members of this project for many fruitful discussions.  ...

Generation of test purposes from Use Case Maps

Daniel Amyot, Luigi Logrippo, Michael Weiss
2005 Computer Networks  
A test purpose is composed of a test goal (a partiallyordered sequence of events) and of an expected test verdict (pass for an acceptance test, and fail for a rejection test).  ...  The first approach is based on testing patterns, the second one on UCM scenario definitions, and the third one on transformations to formal specifications (e.g., in LOTOS).  ...  execution.  ...

Representation and use of task knowledge in a user interface design environment

P. Markopoulos, S. Wilson, P. Johnson
1994 IEE Proceedings - Computers and digital Techniques  
Formal specification languages may be used to provide a precise description of TKS models and to assist in their validation; the use of LOTOS for this purpose is demonstrated.  ...  A software demonstrator for Adept provides a graphical environment where a task model is used to derive an interface model, which may be further refined to produce an executable prototype.  ...  markUndevelopedFilm; exit endproc (* TakeShot *) Task performance unfolds as subgoals are satisfied to enable the execution of subsequent sub-goals.  ...

2001 Software Specification Methods  
Acknowledgements Thanks are due to the following for carefully reviewing the papers that formed the basis of this chapter: Hubert Garavel (INRIA Rhône-Alpes), Radu Mateescu (INRIA Rhône-Alpes) and Carron  ...  The goal was to prove that the process-oriented and data-oriented LOTOS specifications of Case 2 are equivalent by checking their LTSs.  ...  This applies equally to the LOTOS/E-LOTOS and process-oriented/data-oriented variants. Case 2 The E-LOTOS variants have separate modules for handling orders and stocks.  ...
