    Abstract

    We examine JML’s support for specifying the heap space allocation of Java programs. In this report we restrict ourselves to specifying and verifying only allocation but not de-allocation. We identify some problems with with JML’s support and suggest alternatives. Also, we describe an implementation of heap space allocation verification in ESC/Java2. This implementation has been tested on small examples.
