I would like to manipulate the AST from a C++ source code from a Java
application. As far as I know there are no good and open source methods to
get a detailed AST from C++ in Java.

May it be that clang (as it happens in gcc) try to discourage people to
work with the AST outside llvm tools because of uninteded license use fears?
