A Model Checking Approach for Verifying COWS Specifications

  title={A Model Checking Approach for Verifying COWS Specifications},
  author={Alessandro Fantechi and Stefania Gnesi and Alessandro Lapadula and Franco Mazzanti and Rosario Pugliese and Francesco Tiezzi},
We introduce a logical verification framework for checking functional properties of service-oriented applications formally specified using the service specification language COWS. The properties are described by means of SocL, a logic specifically designed to capture peculiar aspects of services. Service behaviours are abstracted in terms of Doubly Labelled Transition Systems, which are used as the interpretation domain for SocL formulae. We also illustrate the SocL model checker at work on a… CONTINUE READING
