UML Behavior Models of Real-Time Embedded Software for Model-Driven Architecture
Model-Driven Architecture (MDA) presents a set of layered models to separate design concerns from platform concerns. The model executability for each model element is still challenging although MDA is currently able to cope with most syntactic and transformation definition issues. Moreover, the importance of rigorous specification and verification of the system is increasing, as the embedded software is more widely used for systems closely related to the people life. Thus, this paper suggests behavior modeling views characterizing Platform-Independent Model (PIM) and Platform-Specific Model (PSM) behaviors and formal and verifiable models for them.
