Translation scheme

The initial HPJava compiler is implemented as a source-to-source translator converting an HPJava program to a Java node program, with calls to runtime functions. The runtime system is built on the NPAC PCRC runtime library [3], which has a kernel implemented in C++ and a Java interface implemented in Java and C++.
