ToolBus allows one to connect tools via a software bus. Programming is done using the scripting language Tscript, which is based on the process algebra ACP. Tscript was originally designed to enable formal verification, but this option has so far not been explored in any detail. We present a method for analyzing a Tscript by translating it to the process algebraic language mCRL2, and then applying model checking to verify behavioral properties.
