VDMTools is a fully featured toolbox for VDM-family with a long history. It has both IDE with GUI and command line tools with features including syntax checkers, type checkers, interpreters, proof obligation generators and code generators. Binary packages (for Mac, Linux and Windows) and documentation (in English and Japanese) are available at fmvdm site, and all source code and documentation are now open-sourced under GPLv3 at github repository.


vdm-mode is an Emacs package for writing VDM specifications using VDM-SL, VDM++ and VDM-RT.



VDMJ provides basic tool support for the VDM-SL, VDM++ and VDM-RT specification languages, written in Java. It includes a parser, a type checker, an interpreter (with arbitrary precision arithmetic), a debugger, a proof obligation generator and a combinatorial test generator with coverage recording, as well as JUnit support for automatic testing and user definable annotations.

VDMJ is a command line tool, but it is used by the Overture project, which adds a graphical Eclipse IDE interface as well as features like code generation (see screen shots below).
