New application domains in data-processing environments pose new requirements on the methodologies, techniques and tools used to design them. The applications’ semantics should be fully represented at an increasingly high level, and the representation should be subject to rigorous validation and verification. We present a semantic representation framework (including the language, methods and tools) for design of data-processing applications. The new features of the framework include a small number of precisely defined domain-independent concepts, high-level possibilities for describing behavioural semantics (methods and constraints) and the validation and verification tools included in the framework. We present examples of the use of the framework, including the use of its tools.
