I have started a project called "mockinject" at a few year ago that need to hook inside method calls and invokedynamic will make it really easy to do it in jdk7. I got some problem with the actual implementation some time ago, but i want to restart the project with invokedymic.

My favorite IDE detects the debug-information show the asm-dump and so it looks like you are debugging the byte-code.
