Modeling toughts before the change

Mirage is the most important part of Owasp Orizon. In fact without a good modeling engine a static analysis tool doesn’t make sense.

Our language packs contain a parser/lexer pair generated with freecc tool. Freecc is a great tool but latest release is one year old and only few grammars are available in the wild.
Antlr is a parser generator far more difficult to use than freecc. However it is able to generate parsers in other languages than java and there are a lo of available grammars constantly updated and mantained.

Can be a straightforward decision to move mirage engine to use antlr in order to have more language packs available.

I think I’m going to move toward that direction.
