Jeeg: Temporal Constraints for the Synchronization of Concurrent Objects

Milicia, G. and Sassone, V. (2005) Jeeg: Temporal Constraints for the Synchronization of Concurrent Objects Concurrency and Computation: Practice & Experience, 17, (5-6), pp. 539-572.

Record type: Article


We introduce Jeeg, a dialect of Java based on a declarative replacement of the synchronization mechanisms of Java that results in a complete decoupling of the 'business' and the 'synchronization' code of classes. Synchronization constraints in Jeeg are expressed in a linear temporal logic which allows to effectively limit the occurrence of the inheritance anomaly that commonly affects concurrent object oriented languages. Jeeg is inspired by the current trend in aspect oriented languages. In a Jeeg program the sequential and concurrent aspects of object behaviors are decoupled: specified separately by the programmer these are then weaved together by the Jeeg compiler.
