I would like to propose a tool for inclusion to the Code Tools project:
Tool Name: Javac Abstract Syntax Tree Viewer
Summary: Graphical viewer for inspection of AST, and other data,
produced by the standard Java compiler, javac.
Proposed By: Jan Lahoda
The way javac models source code is not always easy to grasp, despite
all attempts to make it as convenient as possible. Being able to
actually see and inspect the AST and related information using a
convenient UI is therefore very useful.
Hereby, a GUI tool to visualize javac ASTs and related information is
proposed for the Code Tools project. The primary target audience of the
tool are clients using the javac source code modeling APIs. Secondary
target audience are javac developers themselves. The tool should
therefore also support inspection of javac internal aspects of the model.
