CSPJade: Architectural Driven Development of Complex Embedded System Software Using a CSP Paradigm Based Generation Tool Code

Abstract

A code generation tool for the development of control system software based on an architectural view of distributed real-time systems as a set of communicating parallel processes is presented. Firstly, we obtain a complete system specification by using the CSP+T process algebra. Secondly, an architectural design of the entire system under modeling is performed using the CSPJade graphical tool; once a model of the system is achieved in the CSPJade framework, an implementation in Java can be automatically generated by using the JSCP library. CSPJade defines a graphical abstract model of processes similar to the semantic of CSP+T, so a translation of modeling entities into CSP+T processes and vice-versa is easy to achieve and becomes less error prone. CSPJade allows the designer to deploy a set of reusable software components which are stored in two XML structures, the java project model (JPM) and the java container model (JPM).
