org.apache.axis.utils.cache.ClassCache not caching classes

                 Key: AXIS-2852
             Project: Axis
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Basic Architecture
    Affects Versions: 1.2, 1.3, 1.4, 1.5
         Environment: Any
            Reporter: Francis Hitchens

org.apache.axis.utils.cache.ClassCache.lookup() is used to locate service classes cached in
the classes internal HashMap, classCache. If a class is not found, then lookup() calls ClassUtils.forName()
to load the service class. The service class is then returned to lookup() and stored in another
cache in the JavaClass object.

At no point is the service class added to the ClassCache HashMap classCache.

Consequently every single Web Service request, needs to call the class loader to load and
instantiate a service object. Under light load this is not noticeable. Under heavy load on
a WebLogic server this behaviour leads to the JEE container filling up with threads stuck
on "waiting for monitor entry" on the ClassUtils.forName() call as the class loader thread
is synchronized .

ClassCache.lookup() needs to be modified to add the service class to the classCache HashMap.
