ESC/Java and Houdini

ESC/Java is a static program checker for Java, powered by a detailed semantics engine and an automatic theorem prover. It performs modular checking and relies on the programmer to supply light-weight specifications. Houdini is a programming tool built on top of ESC/Java. By inferring many properties of the program, it can be useful as a program checker even in the absence of programmer-supplied specifications.

This talk gives an overview of ESC/Java and Houdini and reports on some initial experience with Houdini. (Houdini is joint work with Cormac Flanagan.)
