An Annotation and Compiler Plugin System for X10

We propose an annotation system and pluggable type system for X10. The system allows X10 programmers to annotate syntactic constructs in a program. Annotations are examined by compiler plugins, which may implement additional static checking and program transformations guided by the annotations. This paper describes the syntactic and semantic extensions to X10 for supporting annotations and the plugin interface for the X10 compiler.
