USF graduate student Yang Jiang has been working at Sun building a version of the standard javac Java compiler that uses an ANTLR Java grammar instead of the handbuilt parser in there now. He has made amazing progress. Here is the new project at Sun.

"The goal of this Project is to develop an experimental version of the javac compiler based upon a grammar written in ANTLR."
