Formal Specification and Design by L. M. G. Feijs

By L. M. G. Feijs

Formal specification is a technique for accurately modelling computer-based structures that mixes recommendations from software program engineering and mathematical common sense. during this publication the authors describe algebraic and state-based specification recommendations from the unified view of the typical Object-oriented Language for layout, chilly, a wide-spectrum language within the culture of VDM and Z. The kernel language is defined intimately, with many examples, together with: set illustration, a reveal gadget, an INGRES-like database process, and a line editor. primary options equivalent to preliminary algebra semantics, unfastened semantics, partial capabilities, hiding, sharing, predicate and dynamic good judgment, abstraction capabilities, illustration of invariants and black-box correctness also are awarded. extra complex rules, for instance Horn common sense, and big structures are given within the ultimate half. Appendices include complete info of the language's syntax and a specification library. thoughts for software program improvement and layout are emphasized all through, so the publication could be a superb selection for classes in those parts.

Pro Active Record: Databases with Ruby and Rails

Professional lively list is helping you're taking good thing about the complete energy of your database engine from inside your Ruby courses and Rails purposes. ActiveRecord, a part of the magic that makes the Rails framework so strong and simple to take advantage of, is the version component to Rails model/view/controller framework. Its an object-relational mapping library allowing you to have interaction with databases from either Ruby and Rails functions.

Liferay 6.2 User Interface Development

Liferay employs a really good theming procedure with a purpose to swap the appear and feel of the person interfaces. Liferay Portal presents structure templates to be able to describe how a variety of columns and rows are prepared to show portlets. It additionally offers subject matters that may be used to customise the general appear and feel of websites and web content.

Control flow semantics

Regulate stream Semantics offers a unified, formal therapy of the semantics of a large spectrum of regulate stream notions as present in sequential, concurrent, common sense, object-oriented, and sensible programming languages. while in additional conventional techniques one makes a speciality of input/output habit, during this paintings equivalent realization is dedicated to finite and endless computations, the latter stimulated by means of the starting to be value of reactive structures.

Apache Camel Developer's Cookbook

Apache Camel is a de-facto average for constructing integrations in Java, and is predicated on well-understood company Integration styles. it really is used inside of many advertisement and open resource integration items. Camel makes universal integration initiatives effortless whereas nonetheless delivering the developer with the capacity to customise the framework while the location calls for it.

Example text

Write the new line character to the output stream NB. On some systems new line is represented by two characters when output. If compiled to the executable file Simple_Cat, the same program could be run on a Unix or MSDOS system to implement a simple software tool to print the contents of the file about_ada. To list the contents of the file about_ada to the terminal using an MSDOS system, a user could type: Simple_Cat < about_ada Note: On a DOS or Unix system the command Simple_Cat Simple_Cat taking its input from the file about_ada.

L Table A program to print out the square, cube and 4th power of the first 15 positive numbers.  M A Smith - May not be reproduced without permission Ada introduction: Part 1 4 Ada introduction: Part 2 This chapter looks at declarations and use of scalar data items in Ada. One of Ada's key contributions to programming is the ability to declare data items that can only take a specific range of values. Ada’s strong typing ensures that many errors in a program will be detected at compile rather than run-time.

NB. This does not include the new line character. Positions the input pointer at the start of the next line. Any information on the current line is skipped.
