The last proposal for Java closures, as emerged in JSR 000335, is mainly innovative in: (1)Use of nominal types, SAM types, for closures; (2) Introduction of target types and compatibility for a contextual typing of closures; (3) Need for a type inference that reconstructs the omitted type annotations of closures and closure arguments. The paper provides a sound and complete type system, with nominal types, for such a type inference and discusses role and formalization of targeting and of compatibility in the designed inference process.

Abstract

The last proposal for Java closures, as emerged in JSR 000335, is mainly innovative in: (1)Use of nominal types, SAM types, for closures; (2) Introduction of target types and compatibility for a contextual typing of closures; (3) Need for a type inference that reconstructs the omitted type annotations of closures and closure arguments. The paper provides a sound and complete type system, with nominal types, for such a type inference and discusses role and formalization of targeting and of compatibility in the designed inference process.
