This paper introduces an automatic debugging framework that relies on model-based reasoning techniques to locate faults in programs. In particular, model-based diagnosis, together with an abstract interpretation based conflict detection mechanism is used to derive diagnoses, which correspond to possible faults in programs. Design information and partial specifications are applied to guide a model revision process, which allows for automatic detection and correction of structural faults.
