Generator and Search Objects in Java
"Generator classes are defined in the object oriented programming language Java by using continuation-style programming. Generator objects are used to write Prolog-like programs in Java to solve combinatorial constraint satisfaction problems."

Examples include the N-Queens problem and some useful web search functions: "GenURLsFromURL generates the URLs found in the page specified by a given URL, and GenURLcontainsString succeeds if a page contains a given string and fails otherwise." This paper adds Java to the several other LTU postings on generators: [1, 2, 3] (Generator and Search Objects in Java, Lloyd Allison, 2000)
