I agree that MethodHandle[1] may well be a better option. As far as I
understand the MH and related work (for the InvokeDynamic JSR),
invocation through a MethodHandle should be much faster than via
Method and standard reflection.

Personally, I find # a little ugly. I realize this is used within
JavaDoc, but I personally don't read a lot of raw JD so am not used to
it. I don't have an alternative to suggest but I hope someone else
does :).


among other docs, try googling
