Transformation Systems

Frameworks and tools for transforming Java programs:

Transformation systems for Java operate on an abstract syntax representation of Java source code. Unfortunately there are no standard structures for the abstract syntax of Java. See Java Abstract Syntax for the available implementations.


Tools and methods for Java Program Understanding and Reverse Engineering are discussed in several of the papers by Tarja Systa.
