Reading some things and found ExtendJ, very nice tool. There is actually a paper [2].

Multiplicities: the idea programing with one object the same way you deal with many.


Developed by Jesper Öqvist and other students, they implemented a series of extentions on Java. For example the Spread method. You do one thing the same way you do the many objects.

For them to do this, they implemented the @any operator.
Example of making several people work at the same time!

   People A = new People(“A”)

   People B = new People(“B”)



                          status = A.status();


In this case status is equals to working!! AMAZING! But ExtendJ is more power and helps to build extentions to Java code, for example Data Flow analysis and other mechanisms above – extending – Java, basically providing hook points so you can attach your extentions, i.e. extention points.
