Develop a compiler from Prove & Run’s language to Scala.


As a Research & Development Engineer, you will join the team in charge of ProvenTools, the complete development toolchain created by Prove & Run. ProvenTools is an Eclipse-based IDE offering support to write models using Prove & Run’s language (Smart) and to compile them. Models written in Smart are compiled to mainstream languages and Scala is a target of choice, as it ultimately allows to compile Smart to Java bytecode; hereby offering various backends.

The project consists in designing and implementing a compiler to Scala integrated within ProvenTools. The project will require you to write an Eclipse plugin that provides the following features:

  • Generating a Scala implementation of Smart’s types and functions,
  • Generating Scala stubs for Smart’s external types and functions, so that the user can easily integrate handwritten and generated Scala code,

This project will be implemented in Java.
