I am taking a compiler construction course and need to construct a
parser using "an LR(1) parser generator like yacc or bison". My
question regards yacc/bison analogues in Java. I have read some about
JavaCC and ANTLR, but have not been able to determine if either of
those fit the bill. Specifically, are these LR(1) parsers? If not,
what makes them different from LR(1) parsers?

As well, any comments/opinions about either of the above mentioned
tools or any other Java based parser generators would be appreciated.
