However Eclipse does have ANTLR 3.0 in Orbit if you wanted to use ANTLR 3 instead of JavaCC. FWIW I wrote git fast-import. Its grammar is simple enough that you don't need a compiler compiler to handle the stream format. > 2) is anyone else interested in a git-fast-import implementation for JGit? Its been asked for several times on jgit-dev, so there may be some interest.
