We describe an efficient compiler and run-time system for NextGen, a compatible extension of the Java programming language supporting run-time generic types designed by Cartwright and Steele. The resulting system is comparable in performance with both standard Java and the GJ extension of Java, which does not support run-time generic types. Our(More)
This thesis describes extensions to the DrJava development environment that make it suitable for production programming. DrJava is an effective tool for teaching introductory programming skills in Java, and its simplicity is a desirable characteristic for projects of any size. To better support the development of large projects in DrJava, a carefully(More)
