The Rodin Platform

Rodin is an open tool platform for the cost effective rigorous development of dependable complex software systems and services. This platform is based on the event-B formal method and provides natural support for refinement and mathematical proof.

This platform contributes to the Eclipse framework and is extensible using the Eclipse plug-in mechanism.

Rodin development has been partly funded by the European Commission through two RTD projects:

  • project Rodin (FP6 IST project 511599), from September 2004 to October 2007,
  • project Deploy (FP7 IST project 214158), since February 2008.

More information about this platform can be found on the Event-B.org web site, including user and developer documentation available as a Wiki.

The development of this platform is hosted by SourceForge.
