Detecting feature interactions with Cæsar/Aldébaran

Henri Korver
1997 Science of Computer Programming  
Bouma and Zuidweg (Dutch PTT) formalised a simple example of feature interaction between two telephone services in LOTOS.  ...  The interaction takes place between the Abbreviated Dialling and Originating Call Screening service in the IN CS-1 Global Functional Plane.  ...  Values of the detection-point type are used to identify particular points in the Basic Call Process where telephone services are invoked. All interactions in the LOTOS model are of the form: poi!  ...

Formalising Web Services [chapter]

Kenneth J. Turner
2005 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Despite the popularity of web services, creating them manually is an intricate task. Composite web services are defined using the evolving standard for BPEL (Business Process Execution Logic).  ...  Sample CRESS descriptions are presented of web services. These are automatically translated into LOTOS, permitting rigorous analysis and automated validation.  ...  Interaction among Services Scenario-based validation is also a useful way of checking for interference among supposedly independent services.  ...

Specifying and Realising Interactive Voice Services [chapter]

Kenneth J. Turner
2003 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
CRESS (Chisel Representation Employing Systematic Specification) can be used to give a more abstract, language-independent view of interactive voice services.  ...  CRESS is automatically compiled into VoiceXML for implementation, and into LOTOS (Language Of Temporal Ordering Specification) or SDL (Specification and Description Language) for automated analysis.  ...  For example, a feature that introduces extra choices in a menu can interfere with current use of DTMF digits to select from the menu.  ...

Formal Test Automation: A Simple Experiment [chapter]

Axel Belinfante, Jan Feenstra, René G. de Vries, Jan Tretmans, Nicolae Goga, Loe Feijs, Sjouke Mauw, Lex Heerink
1999 IFIP Advances in Information and Communication Technology  
The test scenarios are derived from multiple specification languages: LOTOS, Promela and SDL. A central theme of this study is the usability of batch-oriented and on-the-fly testing approaches.  ...  In this paper 1 we study the automation of test derivation and execution in the area of conformance testing.  ...  This is not explicitly modeled in our LOTOS specification, and therefore these mutants are ioco-correct with respect to the LOTOS specification, which is why we can not detect them.  ...

Analysing interactive voice services

Kenneth J. Turner
2004 Computer Networks  
For this paper, IVR services are described with CRESS and translated into LOTOS (Language Of Temporal Ordering Specification) for automated analysis.  ...  MUSTARD (Multiple-Use Scenario Test And Refusal Description) is introduced as a language for defining scenario-based tests of services. The approach is illustrated with sample tests of IVR services.  ...  Acknowledgements Nuance Corporation kindly provided an academic licence for use of Nuance V-Builder T M in this work.  ...

The Feature Interaction Problem in the IN: In search of a global solution [chapter]

Nadir Belarbi, Dominique Gaiti
1997 Intelligent Networks and Intelligence in Networks  
Telecommunication operators are looking for new types of services to be introduced in multimedia networks.  ...  The toll free number is a key service that first permitted to realize that the introduction of new services in classical telecommunication networks is a difficult task.  ...  Logic The concepts of constraints and knowledge goals [Halpern 90 ] are also used to detect feature interactions [Faci 94 ]. Con~traint-oriented specifications are developed in LOTOS [ISO 8807] .  ...

Feature Interaction Detection using Backward Reasoning with LOTOS [chapter]

Bernard Stepien, Luigi Logrippo
1995 IFIP Advances in Information and Communication Technology  
The method proposed involves specification of the features in LOTOS, and uses an analysis technique called backward reasoning.  ...  Features are specified in LOTOS, and the specification is analyzed by using backward reasoning [DB78] [Hol85] [Lin 90].  ...  SPECIFICATION OF FEATURES USING THE STATUS ORIENTED STYLE There are several published LOTOS specifications of telephones with features [BL93] [Najm93] .  ...

Representing and analysing composed web services using Cress

Kenneth J. Turner
2007 Journal of Network and Computer Applications  
It is outlined how they are automatically implemented and systematically analysed using the target languages BPEL and LOTOS (Language Of Temporal Ordering Specification).  ...  CRESS supports straightforward graphical descriptions of composite web services. Sample descriptions are presented of these.  ...  However, the focus has been on standardised languages used in communications: LOTOS (Language Of Temporal Ordering Specification [10] ) and SDL (Specification and Description Language [12] ).  ...
