The gamma launcher has been removed partly because of this kind of
problem. You can not use a hs25 VM in a JDK7 any more. The "hotspot
express" release model, where newer VMs could be used in older JDKs is
no more. The VM and JDK are once again tightly connected.

That might be possible but there are likely to be other things -
particularly in the area of invokeDynamic and MethodHandles that will
prevent hs25 from operating within 7u45.
