Reflection-based implementation of Java extensions: the double-dispatch use-case

Abstract : Reflection-based libraries may be used to extend the expressive power of Java without modifying the language nor the virtual machine. In this paper, we present the advantages of this approach together with general guidelines allowing such implementations to be practicable. We show how these principles have been applied to develop an efficient and general double-dispatch solution for Java, and we give the details of our implementation.
