Specware: Formal Support for Composing Software

  title={Specware: Formal Support for Composing Software},
  author={Yellamraju V. Srinivas and Richard J{\"u}llig},
Specware supports the systematic construction of formal speciications and their stepwise reenement into programs. The fundamental operations in Specware are that of composing speciications (via colimits), the corresponding reenement by composing reenements (via sheaves), and the generation of programs by composing code modules (via colimits). The concept of diagram reenement is introduced as a practical realization of composing reenements via sheaves. Sequential and parallel composition of… CONTINUE READING
