Subject Re: setting / amending CLASSPATH in script
Date Mon, 19 Nov 2001 15:51:13 GMT
You don't state what you're trying to do, but I can tell you one thing:
you cannot modify your classpath for the current executing jvm. Period.
It is considered read-only (just in case you point out that you *can*
modify it, you'll find out the mods wan't "take"). The best you can do
is create a new classloader using the classpath extensions you want,
but that opens up a whole other can of worms.
