For example if method A calls method B, how can I find, that method B was called from A. And is it possible to find out on the level of bytecode?

There is a solution, but it doesn't work when running under a JIT:  You can use Throwable.printStackTrace to print the current stack to a BufferedOutputStream and then parse the result to find the calling method's name.  The problem is that in a JIT, the Java stack information is not preserved.
