A Formal and Tool-Equipped Approach for the Integration of State Diagrams and Formal Datatypes
March 2007 (vol. 33 no. 3)
pp. 157-170
Separation of concerns or aspects is a way to deal with the increasing complexity of systems. The separate design of models for different aspects also promotes a better reusability level. However, an important issue is then to define means to integrate them into a global model. We present a formal and tool-equipped approach for the integration of dynamic models (behaviors expressed using state diagrams) and static models (formal data types) with the benefit to share advantages of both: graphical user-friendly models for behaviors, formal and abstract models for data types. Integration is achieved in a generic way so that it can deal with both different static specification languages (algebraic specifications, Z, B) and different dynamic specification semantics.
Index Terms:
Formal methods, languages, integrated environments, state diagrams, specification techniques, operational semantics, tools.
