Rémi = invokedynamic backport
be able to use method handle and invokedynamic on 1.5 VM
current status: in limbo :)
more precisely, the project work by detecting invokedynamic call or
method handle calls and translate them to an equivalent sequence
I use ASM to find and patch.
So currently there is a special branch of ASM named invokedynamic
that is able to read and write invokedynamic calls using the lastest
invokedynamic format (the one without receiver, i.e the one of the
MethodHandle supports was almost ready before John changes the format of
(to add varargs bits). I haven't updated the corresponding ASM templates
Invokedynamic supports need to be totally re-designed because it is
based on the
assertion that the method bootstrap on an invokedynamic call is available
during the loading of the bytecode. This assertion seems to be false.
That's the risk of life on bleeding edge :)
I will able to fully update the backport during my next vacation,
in the end of february.
