A Verification System for Distributed Objects with Asynchronous Method Calls
Paper i proceeding, 2009
We present a verification system for Creol, an object-oriented
modeling language for concurrent distributed applications.
The system is an instance of KeY, a framework for object oriented software verification, which has so far been applied foremost to sequential Java. Building on KeY characteristic concepts, like dynamic logic, sequent calculus, explicit substitutions, and the taclet rule language, the system presented in this paper addresses functional correctness of Creol models featuring local cooperative thread parallelism and global communication via asynchronous method calls. The calculus heavily operates on communication histories which describe the interfaces of Creol units. Two example scenarios demonstrate the usage of the system.
