  • Petri nets have been widely used as a tool for modeling and analyzing concurrent and distributed system for many years; however their applications are mainly limited to the earlier activities of software system development. To make Petri nets a full fledge software development methodology, systematic (eventually automatic) code generation techniques are needed. In this paper, we present an approach to derive parallel program skeletons from Petri nets which establishes a link between Petri nets and OO parallel programming and forms a foundation for a Petri net based transformational software development methodology.
