Verification & Validation of Code Generators

Sect. 1.1 established verification and validation (V&V) as a central requirement of the Genesys approach (Requirement G5 - Verification and Validation). As the primary objective,V&Vtechniques should support the generator developer in constructing robust code generators, that correctly produce the desired results. First of all, this includes standard techniques of software engineering such as testing and static analysis, which are of course applicable to code generators just like to any other piece of software. Beyond that, the Genesys approach provides the decisive advantage that code generators are available as models. In consequence, they are amenable to formal methods like model checking (cf. Sect. 3.4).
