Quite a significant milestone today – The change request to switch on Java 7′s MethodHandle and invokedynamic features by default is in. Once this propagates into the OpenJDK repositories, we will see one of the largest features of Java 7 finally land ready for use.

The details of the CR are here.

MethodHandle and invokedynamic are covered in a brand-new chapter of the book “Classfiles & Bytecode” – which will be coming to a MEAP near you very soon.
