Subject HDK ClassLoader behavior differs from RI
Date Wed, 05 Aug 2009 09:45:39 GMT
I am getting the different output with HDK and RI with the following

Step1: Compile TestInnerClass.java [1]  by including junit.jar in the
Step2: Through reflection call the innerclass
TestInnerClass$ExceptingEntryPoint  main method (refer [2]) without
including the junit.jar in the classpath

HDK: throws NoClassDefFoundError: junit/framework/TestCase
RI:  prints "I am printing from TestInnerClass$ExceptingEntryPoint"

Any thougts on this.

P.S: One of the ANT unit-testcase implements this scenario due to which 4
tests are failing.

[1] TestInnerClass .java

import junit.framework.TestCase;
public class TestInnerClass extends TestCase{
    public static class ExceptingEntryPoint {
        public static void main(String[] argv) {
            System.out.println("I am printing from

[2] Testcase: ClassLoadTest.java

import java.lang.reflect.Method;
public class ClassLoadTest {
    public void callMain() throws Exception{
        String classname = "TestInnerClass$ExceptingEntryPoint";
        Class target = Class.forName(classname, true,
        Method main = target.getMethod("main", new Class[]
        main.invoke(null, (Object[])new String[] {null});

    public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception{
        new ClassLoadTest().callMain();

Thanks and Regards,
