The Derby parser, sqlgrammar.jj, is written in javacc, which is then 
generated into Java classes. For an example of how to run the Derby 
parser standalone to just turn out an Abstract Syntax Tree, see 
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-3946 . Derby's parser 
creates an AST composed of nodes from the 
org.apache.derby.impl.sql.compile package. The best documentation on the 
AST is the javadoc for that package. If you need to look deeper under 
the hood, I recommend moving this discussion to the derby developer list.

Hope this helps,
