This paper documents Snacc for Java, as ASN.1 stub compiler for Java, a tool which generates Java stub classes for ASN.1 data type definitions. The paper illustrates the basic object model implemented by the generated Java code. The Java stub classes are based on an ASN.1 run-time system which provides the basic encoding/decoding functionality for different ASN.1 encoding rules. The structure and the properties of the generated Java classes are described in detail.
