Sažetak
In this paper, we present a technique to automatically translate program specifications into pseudo code. This technique is developed in the context of the well-known programming method Jackson Structured Programming (JSP). The objective of our research is to investigate to what extent a programming method can be automated. Current CASE tools are only able to automate programming methods to a very limited extent, whereas our technique automates the entire programming cycle by creating pseudo code from program specifications. We show that the JSP programming method can be transformed into a set of formal rules when the scope of the technique is limited to a well-defined area of problems. The rules are implemented in a CASE tool, called JSPTool, which is currently operative, although still in a prototyping phase. We believe that the strength of the CASE tool lies in the fact that it is able to automate the programming process completely, although its scope possibly is still rather limited. In this paper, the technique is explained by solving an example programming problem. The source language that has been developed to enter program specifications is briefly explained. Also, the differences between other JSP CASE tools and JSPTool are dealt with. Some additional features of the method are discussed and suggestions for future research are given.
