There is a very Geronimo-specific way with which you can hack with the application classloader.

import org.apache.geronimo.kernel.config.MultiParentClassLoader;

  url = a certain folder or a jar file
  MultiParentClassLoader cl = (MultiParentClassLoader) Thread.currentThread.getContextClassloader();

Good luck.

We have an application that we wish to extend its capabilities in running
I want to load jars into geronimo and make them appear in the classpath so
my application can use them without restarting.

Is there a way to to this?

Best regards,
