I have to believe that someone on this list has seen such a thing or
even written it. I'm looking for a Java compiler that has the following
* Is written in pure Java
* Uses a ClassLoader to find other classes to compile (so I can
generate the source on the fly)
I'd also like it to handle Java 1.5 syntax, but this isn't a
I've looked at DynamicJava and it doesn't handle circular class
JavaAssist is close, but it can't be given a whole source file to just
compile, only method bodies.
Groovy works pretty nicely, but doesn't handle the final keyword or
BCEL is just too low level. If someone took the Java 1.5 antlr grammar
and then used BCEL in teh actions, that would probably work.
