The Java Exorcist is a simple Java syntax extender. By default (with no extensions), it only compiles standard Java code, but with each extension to Exorcist a new Java language construct can be defined or redefined. The Exorcist preserves line numbering at runtime and at compile-time. It can be invoked on the command line and through an ant task.

Release Notes: Performance issues with built-in extensions were fixed. The "property" extension was fixed to handle other modifiers too. Annotations syntax was added to the grammar.
Release Notes: Major bugs were fixed. An internal rewrite was done since the initial release. The lexical matcher utility was improved to ease extension development. The following extensions were added to the distribution: easier Log4j logging with keywords, bean properties (getter setter generator), and a foreach construct (for collections and maps).
No changes have been submitted for this release.
