Formal Verification of a Java Compiler in Isabelle

Martin Strecker


This paper reports on the formal proof of correctness of a compiler from Java source language to Java bytecode in the proof environment Isabelle. This work is based on extensive previous formalizations of Java, which comprise all relevant features of object-orientation. We place particular emphasis on describing the effects of design decisions in these formalizations on the compiler correctness proof.
