Original Abstract

The system PNtalk is a language and tool based on the object-oriented Petri nets intended for model a non-trivial concurrent and distributed software system. They have been developed by our research group at Brno University of Technology. PNtalk benefits from the features of Petri nets (formal nature, suggestive description of parallelism, theoretical background) as well as object-orientedness (abstraction, encapsulation, inheritance, polymorphism, and modularity). The goal of this paper is the reflection on the PNtalk system and on its design. It investigates PNtalk's ability to model, simulate, and prototyping with respecting the open environment allowing heterogeneous modeling (there can be combined more different modeling paradigms), distributed simulation, advanced simulation techniques, and self-modification of the models, simulations, or the system.
