In a nutshell
- is a Java programming tool that enables declarative programming of networked systems;
- simplifies the specification of cross-system concurrency;
- completely automates low-level network programming.
FEPOCS-J supports the development of composed networked systems by simplifying the required concurrency specification and completely automating low-level network programming.
FEPCOS-J implements a domain-specific Java language extension based on the FEPCOS-Model and provides:
- application-specific Java annotations,
- the FEPCOS-J Processor fjp,
- the FEPCOS-J Exporter fjx.
The Java annotations enable the structured specification of networked systems. In particular, FEPCOS-J provides the annotation @Part, which enables a Java developer to declaratively compose networked systems like building blocks.
fjp evaluates the annotations and generates code; fjx enables both blocking and concurrent access to the systems over the network.
FEPCOS-J is prototype software for the Linux operating system that Gerhard Fuchs independently develops as part of the FEPCOS-Project.
Detailed descriptions are available in the publications. The application of FEPCOS-J is also shown in a German-language video, using the example of a swarm of toy robots.
