Android Question Pause compilation

¿It is possible at some point of the compilation process, to pause in that process, so that a program (of a third party) does some work on the code before the final compilation?

I refer specifically to whether it is possible to allow after the lexical and syntactic analysis of the source code, the Proguard program (or other) is allowed to obfuscate the code, and then continue with the final compilation?

ProGuard is a free Java class file shrinker, optimizer, obfuscator, and preverifier. It detects and removes unused classes, fields, methods, and attributes. It optimizes bytecode and removes unused instructions. It renames the remaining classes, fields, and methods using short meaningless names. Finally, it preverifies the processed code for Java 6 or for Java Micro Edition.

ProGuard is useful for making code more compact and more efficient, on the desktop, on tablets, on smartphones, and on embedded devices. It also makes code more difficult to reverse engineer.
