PseudoJ: A Pseudo-code interpreter for transforming Pseudo-code into JAVA

  • A Pseudo-code interpreter for transforming Pseudo-code into JAVA, 

PseudoJ is a prototyping solution, which is aimed
at transforming Hand-written pseudo-codes into corresponding
JAVA syntaxes. The solution will speed-up the agile
development process and makes it easier to prototype a software
development. Users of the solution are presented with options to
create new workspaces (new projects), create new PSJ (pseudocode)

files and start prototyping. Under a workspace, Major
Input and Output panels are created which respectively are a
Pseudo-code editor and a JAVA code editor. The solution takes
inputs from both editors and generates / strengthen the JAVA
code as the output. The transformation is live and users
experience code generation at the same time they input while the
core process is hidden from the user. PseudoJ at the core, uses a
trained-data file (configuration file / a mapping) in order to
predict JAVA syntaxes for a given pseudo-code statement. A
trained-data file is needed because the code transformation
process involves a lot of guesswork. At the heart of the program,
Abstract Syntax Tree (AST) of JAVA is used to process JAVA
syntax. The core-process is visualized and demonstrated.
Regardless of the major input and output options, a mobile input
solution is also implemented in order to capture hand-written text
from a user, which makes prototyping even easier. The mobile
solution uses OCR techniques and parses hand-written text into a
digital pseudo-code input. PseudoJ is implement as a plugin for
the Eclipse IDE. The goal is to take advantage of built-in code
refactoring, compiler and debugger. Utilization and features are
compared and contrasted with similar approaches with the
