You want an answer right away??

I think you can do it by using the context class loader instead of
Such as;

ClassLoader cl = Thread.currentThread().getContextClassLoader();
Class cls = cl.loadClass( name );
Object obj = cls.newInstance();

I don't have time to figure out if this will work in JServ, or there are other
limitations as well, but it is the general approach for loading unknown
classes (reachable only by the App class loader) from classes loaded by the
Extension class loader.

Hope that helps.
