I've written some javavm asm before (we had to do for a uni project). There are quite a few things that are much easier to do in javavm asm than actual java, however there are a couple of minor things to consider.
1) Programming stack machines sucks
2) Nowadays most java VMs basically decompile the java bytecode back to sudocode so they can do wizzy recompiling, so I'm not sure how much it would help to write things in java asm.
