Subject [jira] Created: (JDO-488) Use of JDK 1.6 with TCK: ClassLoader.loadClass cannot load arrays in JDK 1.6

Use of JDK 1.6 with TCK: ClassLoader.loadClass cannot load arrays in JDK 1.6
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: JDO-488
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JDO-488
             Project: JDO
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: tck2
    Affects Versions: JDO 2 final
         Environment: Use of JDK 1.6 when running TCK.
            Reporter: David Ezzio


In JDK 1.5 and prior versions of Java 2, the name returned by Class.getName() could be used
with ClassLoader.loadClass to load array types.  This behavior was considered a bug that has
been fixed in JDK 1.6.  As a result, calls using encoded array names such as "L[java.lang.Object;"
now fail with a ClassNotFoundException.
 
See Sun's Java CR 6446627 (http://bugs.sun.com/bugdatabase/view_bug.do?bug_id=6446627) et
alia.  

The recommended practice (and the only available option in JDK 1.6) is to use Class.forName(name,
verify, classloader) to load a class with a specific class loader within the application.
