I wrote a JVM classfile library as part of LambdaVM (which is actually
a JVM backend for GHC, it is a bit bit-rotted though, I need to get
back into it):


It requires my hsutils library (also available on darcs.brianweb.net).
I haven't touched the code in a while and it might need a tweak or two
with recent GHC versions. Drop me a line if you have any trouble
getting it working (and patches are certainly welcome).

There isn't much documentation, besides the code and a few example
programs that dump a pretty printed version of the data structure. I'd
be more than happy to give anybody who is interested in using it some
pointers though.
