The Event-B method is a formal approach for reliable systems specification and verification, being supported by the Rodin platform, which includes mature plugins for theorem-proving, model-checking, or model (de)composition features. In order to complement these techniques with test generation and state model inference from Event-B models, we developed a(More)
Zielonka’s theorem, established 25 years ago, states that any regular language closed under commutation is the language of an asynchronous automaton (a tuple of automata, one per process, exchanging information when performing common actions). Since then, constructing asynchronous automata has been simplified and improved [6, 20, 7, 12, 8, 4, 2, 21, 22]. We(More)
Event-B is a formal modeling language having set theory as its mathematical foundation and abstract state machines as its behavioral specifications. The language has very good tool support based on theorem proving and model checking technologies, but very little support for test generation. Motivated by industrial interest in the latter domain, this paper(More)
We propose an approach which, given a state-transition model of a system, constructs, in parallel, an approximate automaton model and a test suite for the system. The approximate model construction relies on a variant of Angluin’s automata learning algorithm, adapted to finite cover automata. A finite cover automaton represents an approximation of the(More)
