Abstract
In this paper, we draft a CSP-based language for our distributed software d evelopment system. A program model hierarchy, classified into three charact eristic layer: specification layer, monitoring/debugging layer and code lay er, is introduced to help users use appropriate modeling methods in the pro gram development cycle. A hierarchical visualization interface-which contai ns our three-level visualization modeling framework with three different mo dels: Petri nets, IPC Dataflow and Event Code View, transferred from the ex tended CSP-has been also designed and implemented. We could monitor a distr ibuted application by using any coordinated combination of the constructs o f the above models as a favorite view in a systematic manner. The transform ation rules among the constructs of these visual models are also discussed. (C) 2000 Academic Press.
