Ok - keep me updated on this. IIRC the lambda stuff currently does NOT
produce any bytecode (last time i checked it simply wrote null intead of
the invoke dynamic).
If this has changed in the meantime this is good news. So report back
your findings I could make a JDT_Beta download available from efxclipse.org.
It might make sense to host them in an extra branch instead of a JIRA,
not? I think we should setup a bitbucket repo where we attach this (and
patches who will follow) keep stuff compiling on JDK7 (see current
RoboVM-Thread which does NOT support invoke dynamic).
Danno could we do it in your repo?
