Compositional specification of behavioral semantics

Compositional specification of behavioral semantics
An emerging common trend in model-based design of embedded software and systems is the adoption of Domain-Specific Modeling Languages (DSMLs). While syntax metamodeling enables the rapid and inexpensive development of DSMLs, the specification of DSML semantics is still a hard problem. In previous work, we have developed methods and tools for the semantic anchoring of DSMLs. Semantic anchoring introduces a set of reusable “semantic units” that provide reference semantics for basic behavioral es using the Abstract State Machine (ASM) framework. In this paper, we extend the semantic anchoring framework to heterogeneous behaviors by developing a method for the composition of semantic units. Semantic unit composition reduces the required effort from DSML designers and improves the quality of the specification. The proposed method is demonstrated through a case study.
