Flow Java

Flow Java is an extension to Java which extends the language with single-assignment variables and futures as variants of logic variables. The extension is conservative with respect to object-orientation, types, parameter passing and concurrency. The Flow Java implementation is based on GCJ, the GNU compiler for the Java Programming Language, and its runtime environment.
