Could we use a static validator method and generate bytecode for constructors dynamically?

The developer can optionally implement the constructors.

static GetField invariantCheck(GetField f);

Create a caller sensitive GetField implementation and add a two new methods to GetField:

abstract Object createSuper(); // to access superclass object methods for inavariant checking.

abstract Class getType(String name);

Set fields from within constructors.

The generated constructors are straight forward:

1.  Call static method.
2.  Call super class constructor with result from static method.
3.  Set final fields
4.  How to set transient fields, implement a private method called from within the constructor?

Require a permission to extend GetField?
