If I understand correctly then you want to generate bytecode in the 
debugger with references to inaccessible types or members and load that 
code into the target VM. Have you looked at the generating the code to 
use the reflective APIs, maybe in conjunction with an agent that opens 
the packages to the debugger module if needed.
