Software refinement with Perfect Developer

G. Carter, R. Monahan, J.M. Morris
2005 Third IEEE International Conference on Software Engineering and Formal Methods (SEFM'05)  
Perfect Developer is a software tool that supports the formal development of object-oriented programs by refinement, including formal verification of code.  ...  In particular we examine the extent to which Perfect Developer provides formal verification for these techniques. We assess it as a tool for software construction and compare it with related tools.  ...  Many thanks to David Crocker of Escher Technologies for his help and support with Perfect Developer. Enterprise Ireland provided funding under the Basic Research Grant SC/03/278.  ...

Program Derivation by Correctness Enhacements

Nafi Diallo, Wided Ghardallou, Jules Desharnais, Ali Mili
2016 Electronic Proceedings in Theoretical Computer Science  
Among the many properties of relative correctness, that which we found most intriguing is the property that program P' refines program P if and only if P' is more-correct than P with respect to any specification  ...  P' is more-correct than P with respect to any specification.  ...  But today software development from scratch represents a small fraction of software engineering activity; most software engineering person-months nowadays are spent on software maintenance and software  ...

RADAR: A Lightweight Tool for Requirements and Architecture Decision Analysis

Saheed A. Busari, Emmanuel Letier
2017 2017 IEEE/ACM 39th International Conference on Software Engineering (ICSE)  
The language has relations to quantitative AND/OR goal models used in requirements engineering and to feature models used in software product lines.  ...  Quantitative probabilistic models allow software architects to analyse such decisions using stochastic simulation and multiobjective optimisation, but the difficulty of elaborating the models is an obstacle  ...  Saheed Busari's research is supported by the The Petroleum Technology Development Fund (PTDF) in Nigeria.  ...

Using Software Model Checking for Software Component Certification

Ali Taleghani
2007 29th International Conference on Software Engineering (ICSE'07 Companion)  
While software certification can benefit component buyers and developers, we believe that the lack of techniques and standards has hampered the spread of its use.  ...  This research seeks to accomplish two goals: to develop state-space search strategies that enable us to use software model checkers to certify programs and to decrease the amount of intellectual property  ...  In particular, we want to investigate two questions with respect to software model checking: 1.  ...

Open Reconcile: A Practical Open-sourced Ontology-driven Webservice

Rebecca Lawler, Hui Yang, Kathryn Woods, Josh Kaminker
2012 2012 IEEE 16th International Enterprise Distributed Object Computing Conference Workshops  
Open Reconcile is compatible with the Google Refine Reconciliation API, where Google Refine is a tool for data analysis.  ...  It adopts multiple strategies to find the optimal match to reconcile input terms with those in a controlled vocabulary.  ...  Fortunately, Google Refine provides flexible APIs that allow developers to address the above limitations.  ...

Verified Software Grand Challenge [chapter]

Jim Woodcock
2006 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
This paper overviews the Verification Grand Challenge, a large scale multinational intiative designed to significantly increase the interoperability, applicability and uptake of formal development techniques  ...  One technical snag that that Escher's David Crocker hit quite quickly, was that the original Mondex proof uses 'backward simulation refinement' whereas Perfect Developer is designed for 'forward simulation  ...  by an unpredictable software construction process, will be replaced by a software construction process with predictable properties, comparable with most mature engineering disciplines.  ...

System Modeling and Transformational Design Refinement in ForSyDe

I. Sander, A. Jantsch
2004 IEEE Transactions on Computer-Aided Design of Integrated Circuits and Systems  
Starting with a formal specification model, that captures the functionality of the system at a high abstraction level, it provides formal design-transformation methods for a transparent refinement process  ...  We develop the characteristic function for each process type and use it to define semantic preserving and design decision transformations.  ...  As each process constructor has a hardware and software interpretation, the refined implementation model can be interpreted into a structure with hardware and software components.  ...

OPCATeam – Collaborative Business Process Modeling with OPM [chapter]

Dov Dori, Dizza Beimel, Eran Toch
2004 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
This characteristic, combined with refinement and abstraction mechanisms, makes OPM ideal for business process modeling. OPCATeam features multi-user Client-Server architecture.  ...  While collaboration has become a basic requirement for many development environments, solutions for collaborative modeling are far from being satisfact1ory.  ...  Prominent systems for collaborative software coding include CVS [11] , a largescale open-source project, which provides a team of developers with a user-friendly, simple collaboration environment.  ...
