Procyon is an open-source Java compiler. It was created as a part of the Obfuscator-LLVM project, which aimed to improve obfuscation tools for Java applications. Procyon has since become a popular choice for developers looking to manipulate and transform Java bytecode due to its extensibility and performance. The language supports many newer features of Java, including switch expressions introduced in JDK 12.
