Formal Specification with the Java Modeling Language
Book chapter, 2016

This text is a general, self contained, and tool independent introduction into the Java Modeling Language, JML. It appears in a book about the KeY approach and tool for the verification of Java software, because JML is the dominating starting point of KeY style Java verification. However, this chapter does not depend on any specific tool nor verification methodology in any way. This introduction is written for all readers with an interest in formal specification of software in general, and anyone who wants to learn about the JML approach to specification in particular.
