ANTLR has an edge over JavaCC in that it can produce parser source
code in various languages, whereas JavaCC is limited to producing
parsers in Java.
That said, JavaCC+JJTree provides a fine solution for projects that
can use a parser in Java, and there are lots of example JavaCC
grammars out there to learn from.
