Use our web-based tool to verify a small Java program by answering multiple choice and short-answer questions about methods.
We are looking for people to try our web-based tool for verifying the absence of errors in Java programs. In addition to trying the tool, you will be expected answer a few short answer questions to help us improve the tool.
The tool asks two basic types of questions:
1. What must be true in order for a method to not crash (i.e., what are the method's pre-conditions)? An example answer might be: *array != null*
2. What is true when the method exits (i.e., what are the method's post-conditions)? An example answer might be: *x > 5*
Please demo the tool before placing your bid:
