This paper discusses formal specification and verification of the synchronisation classes of the Java API. In many verification systems for concurrent programs, synchronisation is treated as a primitive operation. As a result, verification rules for synchronisation are hard-coded in the logic, and not verified. These rules describe the concrete semantics of the given synchronisation primitive, and manage how resources are protected by synchronisation. In contrast, this paper describes several… CONTINUE READING
