Example text

The individual transitions between the various versions ofa program are made by applying correctness-preserving transformation rules. It is guaranteed that the final version of the program will still satisfy the initial specification. " The goal of transformational programming is therefore to transform a formal specification automatically into an executable software system that is certain to satisfy the initial specification. The result of the transformation phase is not only an implementation, but also a formal development record which contains all transformations and decisions made.

Data flows consist of the parameters passed with these procedure calls. , [FaiS5], [Som85]). The problem with this approach is that it becomes extremely difficult to track the whole data and control flow during the simulation of large applications. The approach becomes completely unrealistic as soon as all the scenarios have to be played through again after changes were applied to a system architecture. A prerequisite for the simulation of large, complex software systems based on their architecture definition is therefore the availability of a tool which represents the current state of execution and makes it possible to trigger control and data flows.

The data items represented by tokens are described beside the S-elements (circles) where the corresponding token is displayed. • Smalltalk code inscribed into the arcs provides three kinds of information: Restrictions on preconditions are fonnulated in tenns of pattern matching. Such restrictions can express that only tokens with certain attribute values enable a precondition. 7, <#red,x> defines that the S-element predicate 1 has to contain at least one token with #red as its first attribute before it becomes a valid precondition.
