Is it possible to implement subj?

I am currently working on the project that has some part where the
programming logic generation is needed. So I have thought about generating
java code using some libraries like Janino, or instantiating Java AST using
Eclipse JDT library.. or direct bytecode generation with ASM or something
like that....

then I have thought that I can use Scala for this.... Are there any Scala
AST libraries? I would like to instantiate it Scala AST and then compile it
to bytecode or msil. Do you find it possible to do? and how hard it cab be?

Thank you in advance :))))))
