    Is there any such "tool" available for coverting Java to Lisp or

    Thanks in advance.

  2. Can you convert an object-oriented language into a constraint-solving
    language? No. Generic Java code has way too many structures that are
    impossible to represent in Prolog, AFAIK.

    Looking into Java to LISP, which is theoretically much easier but still
    far from trivial, the only reference was to an off-hand comment in an
    IRC chatroom (irc:// if you were wondering). The logs
    were of a recent date--September 1, 2007--so you might be able to get
    something there, but don't hold your breath.

    The better question to ask here is "Why do you want to go from Java to
    LISP or Prolog?"

  3. That's probably the same guy we've been getting in ##java. He's
    working on a project where lisp was compiled to java bytecode[1] and
    wants to reverse-engineer java (the language) out of it[1]. He's
    making amazing progress, but I still think his requirements are a
    little unreasonable.

    [1] Whaaaaa..?

    Just rewrite your Java code in Lisp. It should only take 10% of
    the original lines of code, after all.

  5. Armed Bear Common Lisp comes to mind.
