No problem with the VM and JDK being once again tightly connected once the 
bootstrap process is correct, but in my case, the ProjectCreator for MSVC102 
generates this line of command for the hsx/hotspot-rt repository


which is exactly the command line I displayed below

InvokeDynamic is a new opcode that will be produced only by jdk8, if I 
understand well. What I am requesting is just a backport of the reference to 
SetProtectionDomain -- this changeset 37aa82c52317 -- so that a JDK8 be 
produced/tested with a jdk7 as bootstrap jdk.

Currently, I applied  locally  this changeset 37aa82c52317 and ba9dacff9c9d to 
the hsx/jdk7u repo and use it to bootstrap jdk8. Tests are in progress. I will 
keek you updated on the results.
