Towards code generation from design models

Li, Pengyi, Sun, Jing and Wang, Hai (2017). Towards code generation from design models. IN: Proceedings - SEKE 2017. Knowledge Systems Institute Graduate School.


With the growing in size and complexity of modern computer systems, the need for improving the quality at all stages of software development has become a critical issue. The current software production has been largely depended on manual code development. Despite the slow development process, the errors introduced by the programmers contribute to a substantial portion of defects in the final software product. This paper explores the possibility of generating code and assertion constraints from formal design models and use them to verify the implementation. We translate Z formal models into their OCL counter-parts and Java assertions. With the help of existing tools, we demonstrate various checking at different levels to enhance correctness.
