I create a CompilationUnit from scratch, here is the code,

The first snippet is the generated output:
public class HelloWorld {
public static void main(String[] args) {
System.out.println("Hello" + " world");
}
}

The following snippet is the corresponding code that generates the output.

AST ast = AST.newAST(AST.JLS3);
CompilationUnit unit = ast.newCompilationUnit();
PackageDeclaration packageDeclaration = ast.newPackageDeclaration();
packageDeclaration.setName(ast.newSimpleName("example"));
unit.setPackage(packageDeclaration);
ImportDeclaration importDeclaration = ast.newImportDeclaration();
QualifiedName name =
ast.newQualifiedName(
ast.newSimpleName("java"),
ast.newSimpleName("util"));
importDeclaration.setName(name);
importDeclaration.setOnDemand(true);
unit.imports().add(importDeclaration);
TypeDeclaration type = ast.newTypeDeclaration();
type.setInterface(false);
type.modifiers().add(ast.newModifier(Modifier.ModifierKeyword.PUBLIC_KEYWORD));
type.setName(ast.newSimpleName("HelloWorld"));
MethodDeclaration methodDeclaration = ast.newMethodDeclaration();
methodDeclaration.setConstructor(false);
List modifiers = methodDeclaration.modifiers();
modifiers.add(ast.newModifier(Modifier.ModifierKeyword.PUBLIC_KEYWORD));
modifiers.add(ast.newModifier(Modifier.ModifierKeyword.STATIC_KEYWORD));
methodDeclaration.setName(ast.newSimpleName("main"));
methodDeclaration.setReturnType2(ast.newPrimitiveType(PrimitiveType.VOID));
SingleVariableDeclaration variableDeclaration = ast.newSingleVariableDeclaration();
variableDeclaration.setType(ast.newArrayType(ast.newSimpleType(ast.newSimpleName("String"))));
variableDeclaration.setName(ast.newSimpleName("args"));
methodDeclaration.parameters().add(variableDeclaration);
org.eclipse.jdt.core.dom.Block block = ast.newBlock();
MethodInvocation methodInvocation = ast.newMethodInvocation();
name =
ast.newQualifiedName(
ast.newSimpleName("System"),
ast.newSimpleName("out"));
methodInvocation.setExpression(name);
methodInvocation.setName(ast.newSimpleName("println"));
InfixExpression infixExpression = ast.newInfixExpression();
infixExpression.setOperator(InfixExpression.Operator.PLUS);
StringLiteral literal = ast.newStringLiteral();
literal.setLiteralValue("Hello");
infixExpression.setLeftOperand(literal);
literal = ast.newStringLiteral();
literal.setLiteralValue(" world");
infixExpression.setRightOperand(literal);
methodInvocation.arguments().add(infixExpression);
ExpressionStatement expressionStatement = ast.newExpressionStatement(methodInvocation);
block.statements().add(expressionStatement);
methodDeclaration.setBody(block);
type.bodyDeclarations().add(methodDeclaration);
unit.types().add(type);

Can I programmatically compile the AST tree?
