Hello there,

Instead of creating a compilation unit from AST, I was wondering if it is possible to get a hold on the compilation unit that the compiler produced.

Thanks in advance.

The compilation unit that compiler produced is internal and it is exposed outside through the DOM/AST. Here are some internal ways to get hold of the internal CompilationUnit.
- If you use setResolveBindings(true) while creating the AST, the references to the internal CompilationUnit is still kept at DefaultBindingResolver#newAstToOldAst.
- Look at org.eclipse.jdt.internal.compiler.Compiler.compile(ICompilationUnit[]) and it's references and see if you want to call directly.
Note that internal types/methods are liable to change which could break your code.
