Interesting question ...!

 From what I understand Fortress does not have any special classloading 
functionality - which means that it is running relative to a context 
classloader established by the JVM.  What it could do is to scan the jar 
files for meta-info entries. This is relatively strait forward.  If you 
take a pee inside the class 
org.apache.avalon.composition.model.impl.Scanner (in the 
merlin/composition/impl package) you will see an example of the appraoch 
used within the Merlin container (basically for all entries in the 
classpath, scan each entry for component definitions).
