Title: TEMPLAR: A KNOWLEDGE-BASED LANGUAGE FOR SOFTWARE SPECIFICATIONS USING TEMPORAL LOGIC
Authors: Tuzhilin, Alex
Issue Date: Oct-1991
Publisher: Stern School of Business, New York University
Series/Report no.: IS-91-27
Abstract: A software specification language Templar is defined. The language is based on temporal logic and on the Activity-Event-Condition-Activity model of a rule which is an extension of the Event-Condition-Activity model in active databases. The language supports a rich set of modeling primitives, including rules, procedures, temporal logic operators, events, activities, hierarchical decomposition of activities, and parallelism, combined together in a coherent system. The development of the language was guided by the following objectives: specifications written in Templar should be easy for the non-computer oriented users to understand, should have formal syntax and semantics, and it should be easy to map them into a broad range of design specifications.
