Introduction to compiler construction in a Java world.


Introduction to compiler construction in a Java world.

Campbell, Bill and Swami Iyer, Bahar Akbal-Delibas.

Computer scientists at the University of Massachusetts-Boston present a textbook for a compiler course for upper-division undergraduate or first-year graduate computer science students. It uses Java as the implementation language and the source language, and the example compiler and exercises target the Java Virtual Machine. The idea is that while most professional compilers are written in C or C++, most students will not write compilers professionally, and can use their prior knowledge of Java to learn more about compilers than they would otherwise. Aside from this, this is a pretty standard compiler text, covering all the expected areas.
