Mueller, Peter, Poetzsch-Heffter, Arnd and Leavens, Gary (2002) Modular Specification of Frame Properties in JML. Technical Report 02-02, Computer Science, Iowa State University.
We present a modular specification technique for frame properties. The technique uses modifies clauses and abstract fields with declared dependencies. Modularity is guaranteed by a programming model that enforces data abstraction by preventing representation and argument exposure, and by modularity requirements for dependencies. For concreteness, we adapt this technique
to the Java Modeling Language, JML.
