Rexastor is a tool for automatic generation of Extended Abstract Syntax Trees (XASTs) in Java. Unlike many other code generators, Rexastor preserves type safety and code reuse across similar AST.
Rexastor is being developed by Mikoláš Janota as a part of his PhD research. It is written in Java and will run correctly on any system with a 1.5/5.0 or later virtual machine.
The latest version of Rexastor can be downloaded from the following page:
An introductory example with propositional logic ASTs is found here.
Development of Rexastor is hosted at GitHub.
