it's not quite as simple as that :)

each class has a classloader. the class classloader is the loader that 
loads the class. the classloader is not necessarily the same as the 
context classloader attached to the thread in a container environment. 
for example, the class classloader is the root classloader if the class 
is on the root classpath. therefore, for some classes, the class 
classloader may be shared between web applications. the context 
classloader is unique (between web applications).
