AW: amsterdam compiler kit

I'm currently constructing an Occam 2 Java Compiler from scratch (http://www.grid-occam.org, available version is horribly out of date), and would therefore be very interested in any information about the whole topic Occam/Java, too :-) So please drop me a line if you decide to investigate that further.
Kind regards,

Thanks Fred! I guess my next question is: what's the likelihood that NOCC will
support multiple platforms? Aside from non-x86 processors (please, please
PowerPC), I'm thinking of capabilities like being able to emit JVM-compatible
byte-code. Would this be (relatively speaking) straightforward to implement
with the current NOCC architecture, or are there x86-specific assumptions being
built into the compiler?
