Is it just me or are graphical software verification libraries useless? I have had to take courses in several is them at uni. Usually, the diagrams end up being externally complex and more prone to errors than the software they are supposed to verify.

The fact that the "final project"of one course was to verify 100 lines of java in 2 weeks. Any beginning programmer could read the java code and confirm it was correct. The diagram my group produced could only be verified by a team of experts over the course of a year. How is it valuable to spend time "verifying"software if the verification needs even more verification than the original software.

Maybe I'm missing the point but I just don't get why there is a market for expensive propratary software in this area.
