Why do I need another Java compiler when I already have kjc?

Because I am writing an application which generates a Java
source code and immediately compiles and runs it, where the
performance of the compiler is more important than the
completeness as a compiler.  And I find janino very useful
for this purpose.

Including janino, I suggest the following applications
be added to "Compatibility - Application Testing"

- Janino http://www.janino.net/

  Category: Software Development Tools
  Description: an embedded Java compiler

- SableCC http://www.sablecc.org/

  Category: Software Development Tools
  Description: Java parser generator

  I find JavaCC on the page "Compatibility - Application Testing"
  but I cannot find the source of JavaCC.  Is JavaCC still alive?
  I think SableCC is more useful than JavaCC.
