Java applications are composed of classes and classes are composed from bytecode. But if you never goofed around with assembler or machine code Java bytecode can seem an obscure piece of low-level magic. You are invited to this session if you are interested in getting to know Java bytecode, how to read it, and what is possible to do with this knowledge. Anton will also review the available tools that will help in working with Java bytecode. Also he will take a look on how people can programmatically work with bytecode using the ObjectWeb ASM framework.
