Scalagen

Java to Scala conversion

Scalagen is a Java to Scala conversion tool. It uses a Java based parser for Java sources and provides modular transformation of the AST to match Scala idioms. The resulting transformed AST is serialized into Scala format.

Here is a list of example Java sources which have been successfully converted by Scalagen: https://github.com/mysema/scalagen/tree/master/scalagen/src/test/scala/com/mysema/examples

Scalagen has also been tested on our own projects such as Querydsl, RDFBean, Codegen and some customer projects.

Usage

Scalagen provides direct Maven support via a plugin. You can use it directly via the command line like this

mvn com.mysema.scalagen:scalagen-maven-plugin:0.2.2:main -DtargetFolder=target/scala

and for test sources

mvn com.mysema.scalagen:scalagen-maven-plugin:0.2.2:test -DtargetFolder=target/scala

Here is the snippet for an explicit configuration in a POM:

<plugin>
  <groupId>com.mysema.scalagen</groupId>
  <artifactId>scalagen-maven-plugin</artifactId>
  <version>0.2.2</version>
</plugin>

To convert main sources run

mvn scalagen:main

and to convert test sources run

mvn scalagen:test

The conversion results are to be seen as a starting point for the Java to Scala conversion. Some elements are not transformed correctly for various reasons and will need manual intervention.
