Program Promises [article]

Demissies Aredo, Mark Burgess, Simen Hagen
2008 arXiv   pre-print
The framework of promise theory offers an alternative way of understanding programming models, especially in distributed systems.  ...  We show that promise theory can express some familiar constructs and resolve some problems in program interface design, using fewer and simpler concepts than the Unified Modelling Language (UML).  ...  Suppose we describe a program in terms of a set of promises it must keep: let us ask, is there a natural set of promise patterns that emerge in the promise graph of the program?  ...

Finding broken promises in asynchronous JavaScript programs

Saba Alimadadi, Di Zhong, Magnus Madsen, Frank Tip
2018 Proceedings of the ACM on Programming Languages (PACMPL)  
Unfortunately, promises have complex semantics and the intricate controlś and data-flow present in promise-based code hinders program comprehension and can easily lead to bugs.  ...  For example, programmers may forget to resolve or reject a promise on all paths through the program, or forget to register a resolve and reject reaction on a promise.  ...  in the program that is registered as a reaction for a promise.  ...
