FITE - Future Integrated Testing Environment

Authors: Patrice Godefroid, Leonardo Mariani, Andrea Polini, Nikolai Tillmann, Willem Visser, and Michael W. Whalen

Abstract
It is a well known fact that the later software errors are discovered during the development process, the more costly they are to repair. Recently, automatic tools based on static and dynamic analysis have become widely used in industry to detect errors, such as null pointer dereferences, array indexing errors, assertion violations, etc. However, these techniques are typically applied late in the development cycle, and thus, the errors detected by such approaches are expensive to repair. Additionally, these techniques can suffer from scalability and presentation issues due to the fact that they are applied late in the development cycle. To address these issues we suggest that code should be continuously analyzed from an early stage of development, preferably as the code is written. This will allow developers to get instant feedback to repair errors as they are introduced, rather than later when it is more expensive. This analysis should also be incremental in nature to allow better scaling. Additionally, the presentation of errors in static and dynamic analysis tools can be improved due to the small increment of code being analyzed.

06172 Abstracts Collection – Directed Model Checking

Authors: Stefan Edelkamp, Stefan Leue, and Willem Visser

Published in: Dagstuhl Seminar Proceedings, Volume 6172, Directed Model Checking (2007)


Abstract
From 26.04.06 to 29.04.06, the Dagstuhl Seminar 06172 ``Directed Model Checking'' was held in the International Conference and Research Center (IBFI), Schloss Dagstuhl. During the seminar, several participants presented their current research, and ongoing work and open problems were discussed. Abstracts of the presentations given during the seminar as well as abstracts of seminar results and ideas are put together in this paper. The first section describes the seminar topics and goals in general. Links to extended abstracts or full papers are provided, if available.

06172 Executive Summary – Directed Model Checking

Authors: Stefan Edelkamp, Stefan Leue, and Willem Visser

Published in: Dagstuhl Seminar Proceedings, Volume 6172, Directed Model Checking (2007)


Abstract
This is a summary of the Dagstuhl Seminar 06172 {em Directed Model Checking} that was held 26 - 29 April 2006 at Schloss Dagstuhl, Germany. Directed Model Checking is a software and hardware verification technique that performs a systematic, heuristics guided search of the state space of the model to be analyzed. It hence reconciles classical model checking technology with intelligent, heuristics driven search that has a long tradition in artificial intelligence, in particular in the area of action planning. The benefits are short or even optimally short error trails, in some instances a more efficient exploration of the state space, and the applicability of state space search in some application areas in which unintelligent search would not yield useful results. The seminar brought together researchers from the system verification and the artificial intelligence domain in order to discuss the current state of the art, and to elicit and discuss research challenges and future directions.
