> With Java 6, the calls to ClassLoader.loadClass() for array types will fail with a ClassNotFoundException.
Sun "highly" recommends that
>     classLoader.loadClass(className)
> be replaced with
>     Class.forName(className, false, classLoader)
> The issue is described in...

> Basically, ClassLoader.loadClass() is fine for plain classes (which is most of the cases
in Beehive that I looked at), not for arrays etc. However, based on the recommendation from
Sun, I can go through the code and just make changes to use Class.forName()
