Abstract: Statecharts are well-suited to describe the behavior of objects in object-oriented systems. Effective statechart evolution analysis for detecting errors and exploring design alternatives requires to reveal the semantic differences from one statechart to another. Previous work has not produced approaches to semantic differencing of statecharts for object-oriented systems. This paper defines a syntax and a semantics for reduced UML/P statecharts and presents an explicit semantics-preserving translation from statecharts to finite automata. This enables to reduce semantic statechart differencing to language inclusion checking between finite automata. The translation is formally defined and proven to be correct. This paper further introduces operators for hiding and matching events to compare statecharts semantically on different levels of abstraction. The result is a sound and complete method for semantic differencing of statecharts and abstraction methods, which ultimately facilitates se mantic statechart evolution analysis. (More)
