hello, i have an educational compiler construction project that does not have to be hectic but a simple one using java to construct the compiler. It has to compile some of the set of java language, libraries, objects, and controls. it also requires all facets of a standalone compiler (parser - token list, linker, etc...), and end up with an executable.

The problem is i do not know where to start or should i say, with Java the bison and flex is abit confusing because its in C so how do i do it in Java?

I just need the correct steps for me to do this project.

Thank you in advance.

Can you explain what you are referring to here?

using java to construct the compiler.

Does this mean you are to write a compiler in java? With bytecode output that can be executed by the java command?
