FYI, ASM seems to interest Geronimo guys.

I've heard good reports of ASM


and its very small (22Kb) - only problem is its LGPL :(. Anyone fancy
trying to persuade them to change licence :)

We are going to need some BCEL code which varies from simple to quite

I guess I touch a sensitive topic here, but wouldn't it be better to
approach a AOP style solution instead - maybe by using AspectWerkz or
something. I think in the long run there is more involved than creating
proxies for field interception only etc.

I would really, really, really like to delay the AOP framework discussion to much latter. We have just a few places we need byte code generation, and not an entire framework. If you have a *free* tool that we *can* use that do the mentioned things easily, and generates fast code (like bcel can), them please show us how (a patch), otherwise I think we should just go with BCEL (for now).
