Language Support for Design Patterns and Frameworks

We are interested in how different language constructs support design patterns and frameworks, and how the intentions of design patterns and frameworks can be captured either directly by language constructs or by annotating programs with extra information. We use the APPLAB system as an experimental platform for trying out the ideas.
