Abstract

According to a study in 2002 commisioned by a US Department, software bugs annually costs the US economy an estimated $59 billion. A more recent study in 2013 by Cambridge University estimated that the global cost has risen to $312 billion globally.

There exists various ways to prevent, isolate and fix software bugs, ranging from lightweight methods that are (semi)-automatic, to heavyweight methods that require significant user interaction. Our own method described in this tutorial is based on automated run-time checking of a combination of protocol- and data-oriented properties of object-oriented programs.
