Abstract

This paper describes two techniques for Datalog query evaluation and their application to object-oriented program analysis. The first technique transforms Datalog programs into an implicit Boolean Equation System (Bes) that can then be solved by using linear-time complexity algorithms that are available in existing, general purpose verification toolboxes such as Cadp. In order to improve scalability and to enable analyses involving advanced meta-programming features, we develop a second methodology that transforms Datalog programs into rewriting logic (Rwl) theories. This method takes advantage of the preeminent features and facilities that are available within the high-performance system Maude, which provides a very efficient implementation of Rwl. We provide evidence of the practicality of both approaches by reporting on some experiments with a number of real-world Datalog-based analyses. © 2011 Springer-Verlag.
