There aren't any F90 frontends using JavaCC available, that I know of.
Currently, I'm developing a F90 parser/IR/unparser using ANTLR
( for use in a source-transformation automatic
differentiation tool. The code is by no means polished (or completely
working, for that matter), but it is getting there.

In researching what systems are available before I started my
work, there are a couple of F90 frontends available, including:
    Eli (
    HPFfe (
    Sage++ (
Also, several of the Fortran compiler vendors make their front/back
ends available (for a fee of course). I believe NAG and Lahey,
and probably others, do this.
