Running Examples

1. Run Eclipse.

2. Click on Windows -> Open Perspective -> Other.

3. Choose TinyOS and then press OK.

4. Click on File -> Import.

5. Choose File System under TinyOS and then press Next.

6. Enter the location of one of the examples extracted from the downloaded Slede package.

Enter a project name.

Choose the pc option for the platform and then press Finish.

7. Errors displayed next to file are due to a bug of the TinyOS plugin (not Slede plugin) for TinyOS ver 1.1.0. Compilation is not affected though.

Open the file of extension sld.

8. Any change and saving of the verificiation configuration file will trigger the model extraction and verification processes.

Once a violaion of property is detected (if there is any), refresh the folder of the protocol implementation to get the counterexample (in counterexample.txt file).
