Using javac for a { superset of a subset of Java }

Hi *,

Can I use javac compiler code for experimenting / implementing a language
which is similar to Java but has some new features.

I am planning to make a new language which can be called "superset of subset
of Java". The experimental language changes are disruptive and I am not
expecting these features would be merged back.

Its just that I wanted a good compiler code base in Java, for a Java like
language and didn't want to start from scratch.

 Can I publish the resulting new compiler as open source project on OpenJDK
or elsewhere?
