Subject: The Expression problem
Date: Tue, 30 Aug 2022 00:35:58 +0300	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <CAABPU6_r4hZq+rN_DdEvwdJ-43ZTsGRVTYqWqWkhvziuf5yQEw@mail.gmail.com> (raw)

Hi,

I was wondering what was Kawa's stance regarding the Expression problem,
ie. extending existing Java classes.
ABCL provides a mechanism to specialize on Java classes as documented in
section 4.5.2 of the user manual. Clojure provides defprotocol and defmulti
to extend existing types. I skimmed through the Kawa manual and am still
unsure. I am very curious to hear more from the experts.

Thank you.

Daniel
