Abstract
We present the example of the specification, implementation, and verification of a library system in Omnibus. Three approaches to verification (runtime assertion checking, extended static checking, and full formal verification) are applied to the example, and we compare the ease of use and the error coverage of each approach. We then discuss how the three approaches may be used together within Omnibus in an integrated manner, explain the benefits of this, and show how integration is supported by the Omnibus IDE.
