    In the software development area, software verification is important such that it can guarantee the software fulfills its requirements. Despite its importance, verifying software is difficult to achieve. Additional knowledge and effort are needed to write specification especially if the software is complex and big in size. Nevertheless, there are some software that already have verified specifications. This project will focus on extending Arís (Analogical Reasoning for reuse of Implementation & Specification) which has been developed to increase verified software by reusing and transferring the specification from a similar implementation to a target code. The extension is done to facilitate specification transferring to program written in language other than C#, in this case Java. This extension will add functions to existing Arís that will receive Conceptual Graphs representation of a program and write the specification to a file. Another companion system is also built from Java to generate the Conceptual Graphs in Conceptual Graph Interchange Format (CGIF) and transform the Spec# specification to JML. Finally, this new system is evaluated by running some testing. From the result that we have, we can conclude that the building of conceptual graph and the specification transformation is the most difficult part in our system.
