You might want to look at SableCC ( http://sablecc.org ).

Does that too.

Written in Java.

There's no restriction whatsoever on generated code (from the tool point
of view). Of course, if you use an existing grammar, the generated code
is a derivative of the source grammar file and should abide by its license.
In other word, if *you* write the grammar, you can do whatever you like with
the generated code.

Actually, SableCC does not even support embedding actions in the grammar;
you *must* work on the automatically built AST.

SableCC is open source (free software). If this is unacceptable to your
lawyers, just ask me privately. The project would not say no to some
financial contribution... ;-)
