extension to JAVA
Godiva is a dialect of Java that provides general purpose abstractions that have been shown to be valuable in several very high level languages. These facilities include additional built-in data types, higher level operators, goal-directed expression evaluation, and pattern matching on strings. Godiva's extensions make Java more suitable for rapid prototyping and research programming. Adding these features to the core language increases the expressive power of Java in a way that cannot be achieved by class libraries.
Despite introducing higher level structures and expression semantics, Godiva retains as much compatibility with Java as possible. Most Java code does not break when compiled with Godiva, and Godiva programs can utilize compiled Java classes without restrictions.
