The javadoc for MethodsHandes.Lookup is probably the best place to
start, assuming you haven't used it before. This has a good section to
explain how access checking differs to core reflection.
JDK-8162494  is one issue where John has a write-up with some straw
man designs. I suspect it will require working through a few specific
examples to get a feel for what is the right direction.
