Abstract: Formal methods, such as B, were elaborated in order to ensure a high level of precision and coherence. Their major advantage is that they are based on mathematics, which allow, on the one hand, to neutralize risks of ambiguity and uncertainty, and on the other hand, to guarantee the conformance of a specification and its realization. However, these methods use specific notations and concepts which often generate a weak readability and a difficulty of integration in the development and the certification processes. In order to overcome this shortcoming several research works have proposed to bridge the gap between formal developments and alternate UML models which are more intuitive and readable. In this paper we are interested by the B method, which is a formal method used to model systems and check their correction by refinements. Existing works which tried to combine UML and B notations don’t deal with the composition aspects of formal models. This limitation upsets their use for lar ge scale specifications, such as those of information systems, because such specifications are often developed by structured modules. This paper improves the state of the art by proposing an evolutive MDA-based framework for reverse-engineering of UML static diagrams from B specifications built by composing abstract machines.
