Andreas Krall, Jan Vitek, "On Extending Java", in Proc. Proceedings of the Joint Modular Languages Conference, JMLC'97 (Linz, Austria, March, 1997), pp.


The design of Java sports a simple and elegant object model. Its simplicity may well be the language's main selling point-it is both easy to learn and to implement-but in the long run the same simplicity may prove to be a sign of a lack of expressive power that could hinder the development of large software systems. We present four non-intrusive language extensions, tuples, closures, anonymous objects and iterators, give examples of use and detail a translation scheme into plain Java. These extensions enhance the expressive power of Java and allow certain common programming idioms to be coded more naturally.
