Fling - A Fluent API Generator (Artifact)

DARTS-5-2-12.pdf (0.6 MB)


The first general and practical solution of the fluent API problem is presented. We give an algorithm that given a deterministic context free language (equivalently, LR(k), k >= 0 language) encodes it in an unbounded parametric polymorphism type system employing only a polynomial number of types. The theoretical result is employed in an actual tool Fling - a fluent API compiler-compiler in the style of YACC, tailored for embedding DSLs in Java.
