CCITT (now ITU-T) Specification and Description Language (SDL) and systems engineering (formal and informal) in SDL are considered in this publication. The latest version of the language, SDL-92 [ITU Z.100 SDL-92] is introduced. The book has been written for existing and potential users of SDL - technologists involved in the specification and engineering of systems. It offers easier learning, through examples and application, than the Z.100 Recommendation of March 1993, which gives precise technical definitions and concepts. The book has sufficient coverage of the language so that for normal use it should not be necessary to consult Z.100. For this reason, the grammars, both textual and graphical, are included, and the index makes it possible to find text on most of the language mechanisms. Chapter 1 provides an overview of specification and design of telecommunication systems. It considers the usage and scope of SDL. Chapter 2 gives an overview of the language, with an introduction of the major language elements. Chapter 3 focuses on the specification of behaviour and the information interchange between processes. Chapter 4 covers the structuring of systems in terms of instances, how these may be defined by types and how types may be organised in type/subtype hierarchies by inheritance. Parameterised types and packages of type definitions are also covered. Chapter 5 presents the part of the language that provides data types, with emphasis placed on how to use predefined data types. Chapter 6 presents the use of SDL for system engineering, with a discussion of general systems engineering principles followed by an introduction to methodologies which use SDL. The use of other languages in combination with SDL, documentation issues, naming and other lexical rules, errors and language support are considered, since they are more relevant to the use of language in engineering than when initially learning the language.

Validation of Communications Systems with SDL provides a clear practical guide to validating, by simulation, a telecom system modelled in SDL. SDL, the Specification and Description Language standardised by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU-T), is used to specify and develop complex systems such as GSM, GPRS, UMTS, IEEE 802.11 or Hiperlan. Since the downturn in the telecom industry, validating a system before its implementation has become mandatory to reduce costs. This volume guides you step by step through the validation of a simplified protocol layer, from interactive simulation to proof of properties using reachability analysis combined with observers. Every step is explained, using the two main SDL tools commercially available: ObjectGeodeTM and Tau SDLTM Suite, both from Telelogic. Contents: Short tutorial on SDL Presentation of the protocol layer case study Interactive simulation, MSC generation Scripting, automatic non-regression Auto matic validation against MSC, HMSC, etc. Random simulation Exhaustive and bit-state simulation Errors detected and not detected by simulation Other simulator features This book offers you the opportunity to: Learn expert validation techniques and tips Master advanced simulation features of Telelogic ObjectGeodeTM and Tau SDL SuiteTM Practice 156 hands-on exercises with solutions. The SDL models and scripts used in the exercises can be downloaded from the Web.

Message Sequence Charts (MSC) have had an unanticipated success, both with SDL, on its own and in conjunction with other methods and tools. Major tool vendors now offer both SDL and MSC in their tool set. This timely volume reports on the recent developments in this expanding field. Several papers deal with language issues, tools and methods for effective use of MSC. Advances in "SDL technology" are discussed, and several papers deal with the early stages of product development and how SDL may be complemented by other methods, such as OMT, to improve problem understanding and make better SDL designs. New developments in the areas of tools for verification, validation and testing are also included, together with a large number of papers on applications.

As Cavalli and Sarma astutely remarked in the introduction to this volume, it is quite remarkable that SDL '97 may have the first participant younger than SDL itself. SDL '97 provides the opportunity to reflect the course SDL has taken and why it has been successful over two decades where other languages addressing the same market have failed. SDL now also has a permanent companion in MSC (Message Sequence Charts). MSC today is a language in its own right and has its areas of application both in conjunction with SDL and independently or in combination with other techniques. MSC has strong structuring concepts to specify message sequences for large systems and can be used to develop scenarios, which is extremely useful for test and design environments. The SDL Forum today really is the SDL and MSC Forum.

Learning SDL is like learning any new language: it's easier with examples. SDL Illustrated gives you at least one example for every SDL instruction, and shows you step-by-step how to model a simplified protocol stack, including encoding and segmentation of frames. SDL is the Specification and Description Language standardized by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU). It enables you to visually design models which can be checked and debugged using the powerful tools available today. SDL also allows full autocoding of your application, without having to write a single line of code, except when communicating with non-SDL parts or optimizing performance. The book will help beginners become SDL-fluent. More advanced users can use it as a reference to learn through examples checked by a compiler how to master high calibre features such as inheritance or context parameters. UML users will realize how SDL, thanks to its incredible simulation and autocoding potential, efficiently complements and formalizes UML analysis models. Features: 308 figures for in depth understanding of SDL syntax and behaviour; Easy to read even for beginners; All examples and SDL figures are compiled, except SDL-2000 parts not yet implemented; Full coverage of SDL-92 and SDL-96; Detailed presentation of SDL-2000 and of its UML-like features; Migration to SDL-2000.

UML, the Universal Modeling Language, was the first programming language designed to fulfill the requirement for "universality." However, it is a software-specific language, and does not support the needs of engineers designing from the broader systems-based perspective. Therefore, SysML was created. It has been steadily gaining popularity, and many companies, especially in the heavily-regulated Defense, Automotive, Aerospace, Medical Device and Telecomms industries, are already using SysML, or are plannning to switch over to it in the near future. However, little information is currently available on the market regarding SysML. Its use is just on the crest of becoming a widespread phenomenon, and so thousands of software engineers are now beginning to look for training and resources. This book will serve as the one-stop, definitive guide that provide an introduction to SysML, and instruction on how to implement it, for all these new users. *SysML is the latest emerging programming language--250,000 estimated software systems engineers are using it in the US alone! *The first available book on SysML in English *Insider information! The author is a member of the SysML working group and has written sections of the specification *Special focus comparing SysML and UML, and explaining how both can work together

RPC, or remote procedure calling, is the ability to distribute parts of a program to other computers on a network. An RPC facility manages the exchange of data between computers to make remote execution tranparent to the user. Distributed applications based on RPC can utilize distributed network resources and increase significantly the computing power brought to bear on complex problems. An RPC facility is the fundamental element of a distributed computing environment. The book builds a working understanding of RPC programming through examples. Sun RPC, the de facto standard on UNIX systems, is covered in detail. Interprocess communication and other related UNIX programming topics are also covered. The standard-issue RPC documentation is difficult to understand and lacks real-world examples. There are, in addition, many techniques to learn. This book, written from a programmer's perspective, shows you what you can do with RPC and presents a framework for learning it. Contents include: Foundations of remote procedure calling; what it is, how it works, and which vendors support it. What RPC offers to application and product developers. How RPC fits into a distributed computing environment. ONC and DCE, a comparison of their similarities and differences. How to develop, debug, and deploy networked applications. Understanding the interprocess control (IPC) mechanisms on which RPC is based. Using remote procedure calling in parallel/distributed processing and scheduling. Using remote procedure calling with windowing systems. Examples of distributed applications using both single and multiple concurrent servers.
