Helping specification writers: a case study

Abstract : Writing specifications is difficult. If most part of the difficulty comes from the activities of modeling and formalizing themselves, we think that the language used plays also a role. Language designers must take into account the technology used for processing the texts (from parsing to validation and verification tools); this imposes extra constraints which impact negatively on th usability of the language. It is then important to provide specifiers with tools to help write specifications. We present in this paper tools to help write specification for user-interfaces. These tools use static semantics constraints to generate parts of the text. They have been implemented in TYPOL under the system CENTAUR.
