Circus is a combination of Z, CSP, and Morgan's refinement calculus; it has an associated refinement strategy that supports the development of reactive programs. In this work, we present rules to translate Circus programs to Java programs that use JCSP, a library that implements CSP constructs. These rules can be used as a complement to the Circus algebraic refinement technique, or as a guideline for implementation. They are a link between the results on refinement in the context of Circus and a practical programming language in current use. The rules can also be used as the basis for a tool that mechanises the translation.
