Cadmium is both a Java program and library that allow to combine Java and Objective Caml. As a program, Cadmium acts as a replacement for the ocamlrun program; it thus allows to run Objective Caml bytecode files. As a library, Cadmium acts as the runtime support of Cafesterol-compiled files.
Cafesterol is a compiler that is the Java counterpart of ocamlc/ocamlopt. Cadmium is designed to be a pure Java program working on any JVM version 1.5 or above, it does not rely on JNI / native code. It is also different from JavaCaml in that JavaCaml needs to use a special runtime when compiling with ocamlc. At the opposite, Cadmium can run an OCaml bytecode file compiled with traditional options. It strives to be as much as possible compatible with ocamlrun (the OCaml virtual machine).
Cadmium-Dbm is a subprojet providing the implementation for the Objective Caml Dbm module.
Cadmium-SwiXml is a subproject that define bindings for the SwiXml library.
