We present a translation from Fickle (a Java-like language allowing objects that can change their class at run-time) into plain Java. The translation, which maps any Fickle class into a Java class, is driven by an invariant that relates a View the Fickle object to its Java counterpart. The translation, which is proven to preserve both the static and the dynamic semantics of the language, is an enhanced version of a previous proposal by the same authors.

Abstract

We present a translation from Fickle (a Java-like language allowing objects that can change their class at run-time) into plain Java. The translation, which maps any Fickle class into a Java class, is driven by an invariant that relates a View the Fickle object to its Java counterpart. The translation, which is proven to preserve both the static and the dynamic semantics of the language, is an enhanced version of a previous proposal by the same authors.
