3 3 Problem Model checking of software system designs is often intractable due to state space explosion. State space reduction algorithms are applied, but often in an ad-hoc manner. Executable object-oriented (OO) modeling languages –Enable model checking of executable OO software system designs; –Facilitate application of many reduction algorithms. Can reduction algorithms be applied to executable OO software system designs in an organized manner?

4 4 Observations Structures and behaviors of software systems are more observable on the design model level. Executable OO software system designs often follow domain-specific design patterns. Effectiveness of reduction algorithms often depends on structures and behaviors of software systems. State space reduction algorithms are often applied in combination.

6 6 Our Approach Integrated State Space Reduction (ISSR) –Divide the process of model checking executable OO software system designs into three stages: User-driven State Space Reduction; Model Translation; Model Checking; –Apply reduction algorithms in different stages according to their characteristics: Target representations, semantics, automation, etc.; –Explore interactions among reduction algorithms: Combinations, application orders, etc. –Instantiate ISSR based on domain-specific design patterns.

8 8 Model Checking xUML Models System design and query are specified in xUML. xUML level model and query are automatically translated into the S/R automaton language. S/R model and query are checked with the COSPAN model Checker. Bugs found are fed back to system designers. xUML ModelxUML Level Query xUML-to-S/R Translation S/R ModelS/R Level Query Model Checking with COSPAN Success Report / Error Track

10 10 Recursive and Interactive Model Checking Process with ISSR Enqueue (ToDo, T 0 ); Done = { }; Directly_model_checkable (T) Valid (T, ) Model_check(T) Yes = User_driven_state_reduction (T); No Done = Done + {T}; Property holds Error_report_generation( ); Invoke_user_interface( ); No Enqueue (ToDo, T1, …, Tn); Yes No Empty(ToDo) T = Dequeue (ToDo); No Halt Yes

11 11 Selection and Ordering of Reduction Algorithms Selection of Reduction Algorithms –A set of general selection guidelines are suggested. Duplicated class instances Symmetry reduction; Intensive execution interleaving Partial order reduction; … –Selection of user-driven reductions is domain-dependent. Application Order of Reduction Algorithms –Reduction algorithms are ordered by application stages; –Order of user-driven reductions is domain-dependent.

12 12 Automation Support for ISSR COSPAN as Model Checker –Provides Localization Reduction; –Supports Symbolic Model Checking (SMC); –Facilitates Static Partial Order Reduction (SPOR). xUML-to-S/R translator –Is extended with SPOR; –Supports Symmetry Reduction. Reduction manager being developed –Performs user-driven state space reduction; –Coordinates recursive model checking process.

14 14 Transaction Systems A transaction system executes transactions concurrently. Transactions –Sequences of interactions between system components; –Maybe of different types. Transactions of a same type are often symmetric if certain details are abstracted away. Correctness of a transaction system often depends on –Correctness of each transaction; –Correctness of interactions among transactions.

15 15 Model Checking Task A model checking task on a transaction system, S, is a four-tuple,, where –M : An xUML model of S; –T : A transaction type defined on M; –P : A temporal property to be checked on T; –A : A set of temporal properties assumed on the environment of S.

16 16 Instantiation of General Framework for Transaction Systems Reduce P with Symmetry Reduction to P 1 Where P 1 is on Instance 1 of T; P is a query on every instance of T M consists of instances from different classes M consists only of all instances of a class, C Reduce M with Case Splitting to M 1 where M 1 = {Instance 1 of C}; Reduce M with Decomposition into M 1, …, M n ; Reduce T to sub-transactions, T 1, …, T n Reduce P to sub-properties on T 1, …, T n ; Yes No

18 18 Case Study: An Online Ticket Sale System (OTSS) Customer (C)Dispatcher (D) Agent (A)Ticket_Server (TS) TryLater Assignment Hold Request Held/Later/Out TicketHeld/TryLater/SoldOut Payment Ticket Reset Buy/Release Branching Point 1 Branching Point 4 Branching Point 2 Branching Point 3

19 19 Property to be Checked on OTSS In English, After a Request message from a customer is processed by the dispatcher, eventually the system will reply the customer with a TicketHeld message, or a TryLater message, or a SoldOut message. In the xUML level query specification logic, P 0 : After Request (i) Eventually TicketHeld(i) or TryLater (i) or SoldOut(i);

31 31 Related Work Extensive research on various state space reduction algorithms, surveyed in [Clarke, et al. 1999] ; Integrated state space reduction for model checking hardware systems [McMillan 1999, Cadence 2001]. Our work distinguishes by: –Focusing on executable OO software system designs; –Utilizing reduction algorithms for asynchronous execution semantics and synchronous execution semantics; –Exploring integrated state space reduction under a general framework and instantiating for specific domains;

32 32 Conclusions and Future Work General framework for ISSR is proposed. Automation support is partially implemented. Instantiation for transaction systems has been conducted and applied to an online ticket sale system. Future work is focused on –Incorporation of more reduction algorithms; –Full implementation of automation support; –Instantiations for other application domains.
