Initiating a Benchmark for UML and OCL Analysis Tools


The Object Constraint Language (OCL) is becoming more and more popular for model-based engineering, in particular for the development of models and model transformations. OCL is supported by a variety of analysis tools having different scopes, aims and technological corner stones. The spectrum ranges from treating issues concerning formal proof techniques to testing approaches, from validation to verification, and from logic programming and rewriting to SAT-based technologies. This paper is a first step towards a well-founded benchmark for assessing validation and verification techniques on UML and OCL models. The paper puts forward a set of UML and OCL models together with particular questions for these models roughly characterized by the notions consistency, independence, consequences, and reachability. The paper sketches how these questions are handled by two OCL tools, USE and EMFtoCSP. The claim of the paper is not to present a complete benchmark right now. The paper is intended to initiate the development of further UML and OCL models and accompanying questions within the UML and OCL community. The OCL community is invited to check the presented UML and OCL models with their approaches and tools and to contribute further models and questions which emphasize the possibilities offered by their own tools.
