CUP Maven plugin
The Java CUP Maven plugin is used to generate Java-based parsers from CUP parser specifications.
The CUP plugin only has one goal:
- cup:generate attempts to generate parser source files from the provided CUP specification files.
Refer to goal description for the list of all configuration options for CUP plugin.
<project> ... <build> <plugins> <plugin> <groupId>net.sourceforge.czt.dev</groupId> <artifactId>cup-maven-plugin</artifactId> <version>2.0.0</version> ... </plugin> ... </plugins> </build> ... </project>
The plugin is an interface to Java CUP parser generator, so refer to CUP manual for details on writing CUP specifications and using the parser generator.
The CUP plugin uses a modified version of the last CUP release. The official CUP library is no longer in active development, however several minor updates have been added by the Community Z Tools project. The current version used is 0.11-a-czt01.
CUP runtime dependency
The CUP-generated parsers require CUP runtime dependency for compilation and runtime. To avoid having full CUP parser generator as a dependency, the runtime is provided as a separate lightweight library.
Include the matching CUP runtime dependency where parser is generated:
<project> ... <dependencies> <dependency> <groupId>net.sourceforge.czt.dev</groupId> <artifactId>java-cup-runtime</artifactId> <version>0.11-a-czt01</version> </dependency> </dependencies> ... </project>
