Libraries

cglib [sourceforge.net], a library that lets you do metaclass programming efficiently in Java; it’s similar to java.lang.reflect.Proxy, but more flexible and compiled to bytecode. Cglib is commonly used to create decorators — for example, Hibernate uses it to generate proxies, to transparently track whether persistent objects have changed in memory and must be re-saved to the database — but there are other uses, such as mimicking the mixin pattern.

ASM Toolkit for Bytecode Manipulation

ASM & CGLIB working Togther: Article

An Experience: "Hibernate 3.0 relies on CGLIB 2.x, which relies on ASM 1.x, which is API-incompatible with ASM 2.x, so my app experiences an unrecoverable error during context initialization."

How IBatis uses CGLIB: "If you want to enable CGLIB 2.0 bytecode enhancement to improve lazy loading and reflection performance."
