Simulation Generation from UML Like Specifications

Arief, Budi, Speirs, Neil (1999) Simulation Generation from UML Like Specifications. In: IASTED Applied Modelling and Simulation (AMS'99), Cairns, Australia. (KAR id:58808)


We describe a tool which transform UML specifications (in a textual form) into C++ code which can be used by C++SIM - a discrete-event process-based simulation facility. A tool written in the Perl scripting language is used to perform the automatic transformation from specification into C++SIM code. As an example we show how the tool is used to generate simulations of a non-trivial fault tolerant distributed computing system. The system was specified in about 180 lines of UML like notation and automatically generated a simulation program of about 1100 lines of C++.
