	This is not true of the Dynamic Proxy features included with the
JDK.  See the class java.lang.reflect.Proxy, which accepts a ClassLoader
to define the proxy in, as well as a list of interfaces for the Proxy to
implement.  It may well be the case that the ClassLoader you specify must
be able to access the interfaces you specify, but I'd have to try to see
if that was even enforced.  They certainly do not need to all be in the
same CL.

	That said, it may be that App Server X puts additional constraints 
on their implementation.  It would be helpful if you explained exactly 
what you were trying to do and at what step you run into problems, so we 
could avoid that for Geronimo.
